The benefits of vinyl windows over competitors like wood and aluminium are clear. In fact, vinyl is now the industry standard for residential housing. Why? They’re more durable than competitors and require less maintenance, they provide excellent insulation from the elements, modern designs can replicate the appearance of wood and they are highly resistant to water damage, rotting, corrosion and termites.
While the benefits are almost endless, the purpose of this post is not to try and persuade you to buy vinyl windows. In fact, we’re guessing that as a well-informed consumer, you have already made that decision. But we are going to tell you about the benefits of pairing your vinyl window frames with triple pane glass. Together, the two are a match made in heaven.
How Triple Plane Glass Reinforces the Positives of Vinyl Windows
Having triple pane glass installed for either windows or exterior doors is not cheap, whether you’re building a home from scratch or putting in replacement windows. But the initial cost pays for itself throughout the life of the investment. Here’s why:
It’s more energy efficient
Because these windows have three complementary layers of glass they provide much better insulation than standard single pane windows. That means that during the summer months cool air stays and hot air stays out, and vice versa during the frigid Edmonton and Calgary wintertime. That adds up to a more comfortable home and lower energy bills; a win-win.
It’s sound proof
Just as these windows keep you safe from the elements, they also protect your ears from unwanted noise. Whether you’re trying to get a good night’s sleep, reading a good book around the fireplace or sitting down to a meal with your family, these windows will ensure that you and your family can enjoy the moment in peace and quiet.
It brings enhanced durability
Any window has the potential to break when hit by a hard object like a rock or baseball or even under serious weather. But triple panes are the most durable on the market. They’ll withstand more of a beating than any other window, which goes double if you combine them with vinyl window frames. That makes it less likely that you’ll find yourself shelling out for a costly replacement.
It increases the value of your home
Investing in high-quality durables for your house is the best way to increase its value. When it comes to triple panes, all of the factors listed above add up to a higher sale price if you should find yourself looking to sell your home. They improve your standard of living in the short term while serving as a good long-term investment as well.
