Triple Glazing - Ambassador Windows

Click here for information on Double Glazing.

Triple glazed windows are typically more energy efficient than double-glazed windows and can achieve a U-value as low as 0.6 W/m2K versus a U-value for a good double-glazed window of 1.2 W/m2K. However, it is not always the case that triple-glazing has a lower U-value than double-gazing. The glass used in making the units will play a huge part in determining the U-value as well as the cavity between the panes.

Triple-glazed windows are obviously more expensive than double-glazed windows. Investing in triple glazed windows with a low U-value is most appropriate where there is already a high level of insulation in the building such as in a new build or a refurbishment that is engineered to a very good Building Energy Rating, i.e. an A-rating.

If a house has a lower level of insulation, the investment in triple glazed windows with a low U-value would not give as great a return as it would be offset by the heat loss through the other elements of the house. Because only a little heat escapes through triple glazed units it is common for condensation to form on the outside of the glass. This is more common in spring and autumn months and usually clears as the day goes on.

If you have a broken, cracked or broken-down triple glazed unit Ambassador Window Repairs can manufacture and fit replacement triple glazed units even on weekends.
