When it comes to knowing what to invest in for your home to save on energy, triple paned windows are a must. Not only are triple paned windows a short term, money saving decision, but a long term energy saving decision as well. Here are some benefits to triple paned windows.

Durability

Unlike single paned windows, triple pane windows are a lot more durable. Triple paned windows consist of three panes of glass with a spacer that separates them. They are made to withstand our heavy winters and humid summers. In between the triple paned windows, air pockets work to better diffuse heat transfer. To protect your unit from moisture exposure, the panes are held in place with desiccant, a spacer made of a moisture-absorbent material. The entire unit is then sealed to prevent the inner air from escaping.

Triple pane windows can save you a ton of money on your electrical bill.

Save you Energy

Triple paned windows end up saving you money and energy in the long run. Triple pane windows can more than triple a window’s insulating ability. Because of the gas between the panes, cold air is kept in during hot days and heat is trapped during winter days. Your windows account for up 25% of heat loss and because you won’t need to constantly changed the temperature in your home, you will be able to save money on your energy bills. Homeowners can save up 50% on their energy bills when they install triple pane windows.

Environmentally Friendly

Triple paned windows work well in keeping unwanted noise out. This will come in handy if you live near a busy part of town or near a busy road. Not only are you saving money and energy with triple paned windows, but you are also saving the planet. When you upgrade your home to triple paned windows, you will burn less fossil fuel and emit less greenhouse emissions. Your Carbon Footprint is dramatically reduced. So while you benefit a lot from triple paned windows, the planet benefits too!
