6 Ways Our Triple-Pane Windows Beat Double-Pane Windows
A By-The-Numbers Breakdown Of What You Get With Rescom Replacement Windows
If you need new windows in New England, you’re probably asking yourself the same question many homeowners do…
“Should I choose double pane or triple pane?”
It can be a tough question because a lot of confusing and contradictory information is out there. It’s hard to know what’s true… and what’s a steaming pile of fake news.
We can’t speak for other companies’ triple-pane windows. But we can tell you, without a shadow of a doubt, that Rescom triple-pane windows beat the pants off double-pane windows. In fact, we have verifiable PROOF.
We pitted our triple-pane windows against the average double-pane windows in a series of tests. We measured different aspects of the windows in six categories most important to homeowners.
Here are the results…
Rescom Triple Pane Has 60% Thicker Glass
What It Means
The average double-pane window glass is 5/8th of an inch thick from the exterior of the outer pane to the interior of the inner pane. Rescom triple-pane windows are one-inch thick from exterior to interior glass. That’s a 60% thicker glass package overall.
Clear double-pane windows, which are what’s on many New England homes, have a U-Factor of 0.62. Our triple-pane windows are 195% more efficient with an ENERGY STAR-rated U-Factor of 0.21. (With U-Factor, lower numbers are better. Find out more on our Window Energy Efficiency page.)
How do our windows stack up against higher quality double-pane windows? Rescom windows are 152% more efficient than ENERGY STAR standards and over 100% more
How This Benefits You
The benefits of energy-efficient home windows are well established. You’ll experience a more comfortable home year-round. Your heating and cooling bills will be lower. And you’ll help the environment. Win-win-win.
Other vinyl window frames—not just double pane—are hollow. As a result, they expand and contract at a high rate, which leads to problems like warping, sagging, and bowing.
Our window frames contain a full, titanium-composite substructure for premium structural integrity.
How This Benefits You
You get the strongest windows your dollars can buy. Our substructure acts as a “skeleton,” keeping your windows rigid and impervious to warping, sagging, and bowing. Plus, the added structural support is superior for handling three panes of glass.
