Triple pane glass windows? You might not even realize these exist. The standard for modern windows – both new construction and replacement is double pane glass. This concept dates back to the 1860s, but the true modern double-pane glass window didn’t arrive on the home market until 1952. A Minnesota company – Andersen – was the first to manufacture wood window frames, and that led to the process which incorporated two panes of glass. While you’ll still see single-pane glass windows in historic homes or older ones around the Minneapolis area that haven’t had any window upgrades, double pane glass is pretty much what you’ll find.
But occasionally you’ll run into triple-pane glass windows. (Two companies we work with – Marvin and Weather Shield – offer triple pane options. The photo here is courtesy of Marvin, and it shows a typical triple pane window construction.) Depending on the type of window, size, and style, you might be looking at an additional cost of $200-$500 per window over the cost of a comparable double pane window. That’s a substantial financial investment, so before you jump on the ‘more is better’ bandwagon, you need to evaluate whether that additional expense is worth it.
We have covered this topic in the past (see this earlier blog post), but the question seems to come around each year as it starts to get cold and homeowners are wondering if they are saving as much money as they could on their heating bills with the windows they have.
Whether or not investing in triple pane windows makes sense for your home is something we can help you evaluate. It may be that a better option is a storm window. Or it could be your current windows are doing their job just fine. Regardless, we’re here to help you find the best window solution for your home.
