    Single Window Pane Cut-away

    Single Pane Windows

    Most windows that are manufactured today have multiple panes, because they are more energy efficient than single pane windows.

    However, there are some people that prefer single pane windows because they are considerably less expensive than the double pane variety.

    In addition to the cost factor, in some cases, lightweight windows are needed, and single pane products are lighter than their multi-pane counterparts.

    Double Pane Windows

    Double pane windows provide a host of advantages over the single pane variety, and they are less expensive than triple pane windows. The two panes, which are called lites, are separated by a spacer that is usually made of aluminum, stainless steel or carbon fiber. It serves a number different purposes beyond the simple separation of the glass lites.

    Spacers are bonded with seals so that there is a cavity that is airtight between the two panes of glass. They are coated with a desiccant, and this absorbs any moisture that may penetrate, and it also limits condensation. A gas is often utilized in the cavity that is created by the sealed spacers; argon gas is the most common one, and krypton, which is more expensive, is another option.

    A Low-E coating is added to the window panes to add to the energy efficiency. Heating and cooling bills will definitely go down when single pane windows are replaced with double pane products, and this offsets the cost of the replacement windows.

    Triple Pane Windows

    Anyone that is looking for sound abatement (noise reduction) should choose triple pane windows.

    The basic principle with regard to the structure is the same as it is for double pane windows. Though it is true that triple pane windows provide more energy efficiency than the double pane variety.

    Triple pane windows are considerably more expensive, so it is important to weigh the benefits versus the cost. This being stated, it may take a while, but the cost of the upgrade should pay for itself as energy cost savings accumulate over the years.
