When it comes to choosing new windows and doors for your South Yorkshire home, one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make is whether to opt for double glazing or triple glazing. Both options offer their own set of benefits, but understanding the differences between them can help you make an informed decision that suits your needs and budget.

Energy Efficiency

Triple glazing

One of the main reasons homeowners choose double or triple glazing is for improved thermal efficiency. Double glazing consists of two panes of glass with a layer of air or inert gas in between, which acts as insulation against heat loss. Triple glazing takes this a step further by adding an extra pane of glass and another layer of insulation. As a result, triple glazed windows have an excellent energy rating and provide even better thermal performance than their double glazed counterparts, saving you money on your heating bills.

Noise Reduction

Living in a busy area or near a noisy road can be quite bothersome when it comes to noise pollution inside your home. Both double and triple glazed windows are effective at reducing external noise levels, but triple glazing offers superior soundproofing capabilities due to its additional layers of glass and insulation. If peace and quiet are high on your priority list, then triple glazing might be the best choice for you.

Security

Another crucial factor to consider when selecting new windows and doors is security. Double glazed units already provide excellent protection against intruders due to their multiple layers of glass. However, if you’re looking for added peace of mind, especially if you live in an area with higher crime rates, then opting for triple glazing could be worth considering as it provides an extra barrier that makes breaking through much more difficult.

Cost

Undoubtedly, cost plays a significant role in any home improvement project. Generally speaking, double glazing tends to be more affordable compared to the cost of triple glazing due to fewer materials involved in manufacturing them. However, it’s important to consider the long-term benefits and potential energy savings that triple glazing can offer. While the initial investment may be higher, you could potentially save more on your energy bills over time.

Aesthetics

The appearance of your windows and doors is an essential aspect of your home’s overall aesthetic appeal. Double glazed units are available in a wide range of styles, designs, and finishes to suit any architectural style or personal preference. Triple glazing options are also becoming increasingly diverse but may have fewer choices compared to double glazing due to its less widespread popularity.

Which option is best for my home?

Choosing between double glazing and triple glazing ultimately depends on your specific needs and budget. If you’re looking for improved energy efficiency, noise reduction, enhanced security, and can afford the upfront cost, then triple glazing might be the best choice for you. However, if cost is a significant factor or if you live in an area with minimal noise pollution or security concerns, then double glazing could still provide excellent performance at a more affordable price point.

Brilliant company from all we’ve dealt with, right through to the fitters, to the follow-up emails making sure everything was ok. Having used you before and after having work done to my property, I thought you the only obvious choice to return. Was a little worried as I’d had insulated render fitted and was concerned about the removal and refitting into the same size opening, and the damage it would cause. No worries, it seems. Each to their own trade as they say, and I’m glad they managed it and left me in no doubt, another great job done. Many thanks to you all. And see you in 15 years again?

After a fair few months of looking for a good window provider we can say we are one hundred percent happy with Global. They exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Michael with the quote, the lovely ladies from the office and Andy and Josh who fitted our seven windows and front door. Very professional, good quality, quick and efficient work. A pleasure to work with such a team. Our next step is the conservatory with Global. Thank you and well done to all.

Excellent Service

My mum wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic service Global windows have given her following her burglary. From start to finish they reassured her the replacement patio doors would be robust and fitted as quickly as possible to ensure the property was secured. On the day of fitting the fitters arrived promptly and installed the doors with no mess. The gentleman who organised this from Global (sorry she couldn’t remember his name) came out to check the doors and to see mum was happy with them brought her a beautiful bunch of flowers. Mum was over the moon. Thank you so much.

We decided to re-use this Company despite moving house and County. Global were helpful and very professional at all stages of the installation. We found all their staff friendly and knowledgeable. Dates given, returning phone calls etc. were all met. The price was very competitive, the quality of their products was excellent with a good range of colours and styles. The fitters were very hardworking, managed to get the work done in one day rather than the expected 2, mainly due to the fact they worked as a team, didn’t take breaks and clearly knew their job. Great company.
