Triple Glazing can be over 40% more efficient than Double Glazing
Triple Glazing in Carlisle, Cumbria and Dumfries, Dumfriesshire
Thousands of people a week get replacement double glazing installed into their homes across the UK. WORLD GROUP offer maximum value for money on their range of high performance double glazing. However, did you know, Triple Glazing can be over 40% more efficient than Double Glazing?
What is Triple Glazing?
Triple glazing is as simple as it sounds. Three bits of glass, two with a special coating for enhanced thermal performance, bonded with two warm edge spacer bars, both filled with argon gas. Double glazed windows are a standard product in the property improvement industry, however there are alternatives. Some people opt for the Triple Glazed product or sometimes install Secondary Glazing when they're looking at improving the energy efficiency and thermal performance of their property. Be careful, not all window suppliers and manufacturers are as honest as us, some get away with using substandard products and don't always have a Triple Glazed window that can achieve such thermal efficiency.

How much does Triple Glazing cost?

Triple Glazing Top Tips!
There are hundreds of different double glazing products across the country. Some are manufactured locally, some are bought in from larger manufacturers, some are even brough in from overseas.
At World Group, we know that making the correct decision is crucial. Replacement Triple Glazing should be an investment, not just a purchase. The new Triple Glazing products should be working to save you money on your heating bills and add value to your property - whilst also enhancing the appearance! Follow our top tips below to make sure you chose the right product for you:
- Who are the company? Do your research and find the right triple glazing installer. Are the Certass (or equivalent body) registered?
- Do the company you've chosen manufacture their own triple glazing products? If they do, they can be more attentive and have more control over the manufcature process which helos keep high quality levels.
- What makes their product different from what you currently have? A few questions to keep in mind are:
- How thermally efficient are they? Ask for U-Value reports showing you the figures.
- What low emissivity coating is used on the glass and do they use warm edge spacer bars? This is a coating to reduce heat loss.
- What colour options are available? Ask to see their samples to ensure you make the right choice.
- Do they use subcontractors for installation? Sometimes subcontractors are a bit heavier handed than fully employed installers, this can leave you with a poorer quality installation.
- How long will the installation take? The average installation team will install and finish off 5 average windows a day - to a high standard. If they're quoting a day to fit a house full of triple glazed windows, they're probably rushing and not taking time!
- What do I get for my money? What is the guarantee coverage? Why is their product worth the money you're paying? What can they offer you the customer, as a business, after point of sale and installation?
One final point worth making a note of is that the cheapest price isn't always the best value for money. Usually, if the price seems too good to be true - it is. There are various locks, handles, hinges available in the industry, some are of higher quality than others. Just because one installer is £200, £300 or even £800 (in a larger installation) more expensive than others, don't rule them out straight away - ask them why. If, like us, they use high security locks, and quality key locking handles, they're more than likely investing your money in better quality products at manufacture stage, which in turn will reduce your ongoing maintenance costs, work longer for you and last longer which in turn represent better value for money.

Can I just change the glass of my existing Double Glazed products?
It will depend on the age of the windows and who you bought them from originally.
In the last 5 years, World Group have been manufacturing a double glazed and triple glazed profile system that changes only the glazing bead. This means, if you've bought your double glazing from World Group in this time period, the glass and glazing bead can be changed over with relative ease.
If you're not an existing World Group customer, or the products in question are a little bit older, we may still be able to help you. If the profile system used is similar in design, or the same, and the glazing bead can fit the existing windows, you're in luck.
Alternatively, you can look at 28mm triple glazing as opposed to our 44mm triple glazing option. The downside of this is that you would miss out on the wonderful thermal improvements offered to you by the 44mm option - as this combines two 16mm airspaces along with two 16mm spacer bars. TOP TIP - 16mm is the optimal performing cavity width in glazing.
Speak to us about the options and we'll be able to guide you as per your specific requirements.
