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.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
