Triple-Pane Windows, Piedmont Triad, NC
We are America’s Triple-Pane Window Company
Triple-pane windows from Window Depot of the Triad are the epitome of energy efficiency, sound reduction and condensation resistance. These high-performance windows are made with three panes of glass rather than just two for maximum benefit. Our triple-pane replacement windows utilize industry-leading technology and are carefully manufactured, so you can enjoy the many advantages of this amazing product
DUAL-PANE VERSUS TRIPLE-PANE WINDOWS
In all of the windows that we sell, the glass has at least TWO panes. Putting two panes of glass inside one window is referred to as ‘dual-pane’ or ‘thermal-pane’. These two panes of glass provide an extra barrier to heat loss (or gain) during the heating and cooling months of the year. The two panes of glass, plus the airspace between, allow for improved insulation. Then when low-e coatings and specialized gas fills like argon are incorporated, we have what we call an insulated glass unit. This is why we say that the IG is essentially the engine of the window.
THE TRIPLE-PANE INSULATED GLASS UNIT
As amazing as dual-pane windows are, there is a ‘next level’ energy saving technology, and that is triple-pane windows. As you might expect, this means that a THIRD layer of glass is incorporated into the insulated glass unit. While this may sound simple, the effects are drastic!
KEY ADVANTAGES OF TRIPLE-PANE WINDOWS
INCREASED INSULATING POWER
Our triple-pane windows can increase the U factor of dual-pane, clear glass windows by up to 52%. This improvement comes from a combination of the extra pane of glass, multiple cavities that contain insulating ‘blankets’ of argon gas, and additional glass surfaces on which to apply our low-e coating technology.
Whether you live in a climate that demands more heating or cooling of your home, the key to our triple-pane insulating power is stopping heat flow. In heating climates, triple-pane windows keep more of your warmth and energy IN. In cooling climates, triple-pane windows keep more of the radiant heat and temperatures OUT.
ENHANCED CONDENSATION RESISTANCE
Condensation resistance factor (CRF) is a measurement used to quantify a window’s ability to resist condensation from forming. Whenever condensation is present, the first thing to look for is the atmospheric conditions, or more simply put, is your home encouraging condensation? This can come from high humidity levels and/or lack of sufficient air-flow in the home and is magnified by windows that do not provide good insulation.
The reason why insufficient windows promote condensation is because the surface of the glass gets cooler as heat escapes.
Highly insulating windows keep the temperature on the surface of the glass warmer and thus more resistant to condensing the moisture-rich air in the atmosphere of your home.
Our triple-pane windows enhance condensation resistance of normal clear glass windows up to 49% and can even improve normal dual-pane low-e windows by over 20%.
There are many reasons to promote good condensation resistance. Excess moisture can lead to rotted window sills and even mold and mildew promotion.
Triple-pane windows offer the highest CRF available.
ELIMINATE OUTSIDE NOISE
Another great feature of triple-pane windows is their ability to block out more NOISE from the outside world.
The additional pane of glass and the extra airspace created in the insulated glass unit provide additional barriers to sound transmission.
Peace and quiet can be priceless!
