When you replace the windows in your home, you will reduce your monthly energy bill while improving your indoor climate control. One great way window replacement solution is to install energy-efficient triple pane windows. Here’s how triple pane windows can help keep your Michigan home cool this summer: More Insulating Surfaces A triple pane window contains three separate panes of glass. These three panes offer six insulating surfaces, rather than the two or four surfaces of single and double paned glass. This extra surface area allows the window to absorb both hot and cold air. When cold air is absorbed rather than transmitted by your window, your home will stay cooler during the hot summer months.
Improved Internal Spaces Between the three panes of glass are two insulating spaces. When your triple pane windows are installed, the technician can fill these two spaced with argon or krypton gas. This pocket of gas will prevent energy from escaping through the window. With this doubled interior space, the triple pane window is much more effective at keeping cool air in and hot air out.
Specialized Energy Coating To really get the most cooling and insulation from your triple pane windows, you can have them treated with low-E coating. This treatment applies a thin layer of reflective metal to the outside of the window. The metal reflects heat and light away from your windows, while being transparent enough so that your view is not obstructed. This low-E coating, combined with extra insulating space and increased surface area, make triple pane windows the most effective and efficient choice for your summer energy savings.
