Why Does Window Glazing Matter?
If you have been doing some research into windows, you have probably heard quite a bit about window glazing. Window glazing is another word for double-pane or triple-pane windows. In short, window glazing is about energy-efficiency and comfort for your home. But do you know why window glazing matters so much? Glazed windows have at least two sheets of glass in them, and between the glass is an inert gas, usually argon. The entire unit is sealed in the frame, which means lower heat exchange rates. The result? Your home stays cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. But glazed windows can go beyond that with soundproofing qualities that make it perfect for city areas, and UV protection that keeps harmful rays out of your home, thus protecting your furniture from fading. Double-pane windows have become standard for new construction, but triple-pane windows are quickly catching up.
