As those of us who have lived in Toronto all our lives know, Canadian winters are always brutal. If you’ve noticed that your home seems extra chilly lately or that your heating has had to work overtime to keep you from turning into a popsicle overnight (with sky-high utility bills to match), it might be time upgrade your windows.
Does your home still have outdated single pane windows that feel frigid to the touch? High-quality, built-to-last triple pane windows from Toronto Doors and Windows are just what your home needs to withstand the brutal cold and endless snow and ice storms of Canada’s winters.
What are Triple Pane Windows?
Triple pane windows are the next step up from single and double pane windows. Also sometimes referred to as triple glazed windows, they place three layers of protective glass with a low-emissivity coating between your home and the outside. The space in between each layer is filled with krypton or argon gas, which provides extra insulation. Any type of window material, from aluminium to vinyl windows, or style, from casement to tilt and turn windows, can have triple panes.
The Many Benefits of Eco-Friendly and Wallet-Friendly Triple Pane Windows
Triple glazing from Toronto Doors and Windows are not just a purchase, they are an investment. Although they may not be worth the extra cost in warmer climates, they are absolutely essential for our frigid Canadian winters. Here are just a few of the best reasons to invest in durable, quality triple glazed windows from Toronto Doors and Windows.
1. Better Insulation
About 22% of your home’s energy is lost through windows that are not energy efficient. Triple pane windows conserve about 30% more energy than double pane windows and an astounding 80-90% more energy than single pane windows. Improved insulation not only lowers your heating costs and leaves less of a carbon footprint, it also means better soundproofing, less interior condensation, and less exposure to harmful UV rays that can fade curtains and carpets.
2. Lower Utility Bills
While triple pane windows come with a higher price tag, they also save you money in the long run. On average, triple glazed windows save you 20% over double pane windows and 50% over single pane. With utility costs on the rise, now is the time to invest in energy efficient windows that will recoup your initial expense within 5 years or less.
3. Increased Comfort
Imagine being able to cuddle up near a window on a cold day, reading a book near the last dying rays of the sun. That cozy prospect is entirely possible with triple pane windows that don’t conduct cold or let in uncomfortable drafts that have you reaching for yet another sweater.
4. Improved Security
Single pane windows are incredibly flimsy and make break-ins all too simple for unwanted guests. It’s much harder for intruders to break through three layers of sturdy, high-quality glass.
