Triple Pane windows mean superior performance. Standard Dual Pane windows feature two pieces of glass that are sealed together with what’s called a spacer. The surfaces of the glass can be treated with Low E coatings, and the chamber that is created can be filled with insulating inert gases.
With Triple Pane windows, we introduce a third layer of glass. Not only does this create an additional layer to stop energy loss, but it creates a second chamber that can also be filled with insulating gases.
The Efficient Windows Collaborative makes it clear that Triple Pane windows represent substantial energy savings. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy has created an initiative to publicize windows qualifying for an insulating factor of R5.* With this type of configuration, available with our Triple Pane windows, average heat loss can be reduced by up to 40%.
