Does Energy Efficiency Increase With More Window Panes?

When tackling a window replacement project, choosing the frame material and the desired style of operation is not enough. You must also consider the number of glass panes the window should have. Some only have one, most have two, and others have three. Many people believe, however, that energy efficiency increases with more glazing.

Does Energy Efficiency Increase With More Window Panes?

That, unfortunately, is not always the case for the most part.

Several Layers of Glass Is Better, But…

Gone are the days where a window unit only had a single pane of glass. It is good enough to provide a view of the outdoors and keep the wind out, but such a fixture is likely to allow weather conditions outside to affect the indoor temperatures. After all, a single glass pane is a poor insulator.

It is the reason why many manufacturers began building windows with either double- or triple-pane glazing. They are huge upgrades, with the latter outperforming the former. Except in extreme climates, the degree of insulation from an additional third pane is barely noticeable.

Instead of focusing on the individual parts of the window, it is better to tackle what’s more important.

"The service provided by Renewal by Anderson is great, both on the sales and the installation side. Our sales representative was very accommodating and helpful. The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
