Choosing Between Single-Pane and Multi-Pane Windows

Oct 16, 2017

While shopping for new windows for your San Diego home, you’ll have a number of decisions to make on the type of window you’d like to have installed. These decisions will include factors such as the material of window, size, and color. Among these many decisions, however, one that frequently goes overlooked is the glass density your window will include. While this decision may seem like a minor detail, it will play a role in multiple areas of your household life. Here, we will be discussing the benefits of choosing double or triple-pane glass over single-pane.

Finally, Restore Some Peace and Quiet

Do you feel like your home is located in the middle of Grand Central Station? Trust us, we get it. While the sound of birds singing in the morning is typically welcome in a home, heavy construction work or loud rush hour traffic isn’t. The simple solution is to choose a window with a thicker density of glass. Single-pane glass is too thin to block out exterior noise, however, double or triple-pane glass has the potential to restore some peace and quiet to your home.

Keep Your Family Safe

When it comes to any project involving your home, safety and security should always be a top priority. We understand how important it is to protect your family and belongings, which is why we always pay special attention to one of the easiest access points of your home…your windows. The primary way outside threats tend to break and enter is by simply smashing glass. The thinner the glass, the easier it is to break in, which is why choosing double or triple-pane glass is the more secure option for your home.

Save Money on Your Monthly Bills

Who doesn’t like to save money? As much as we would all love to spend less on those monthly bills, very few homeowners actually consider their windows as a potential solution. According to the American Energy Association (AEA), up to 60% of the energy wasted in homes escaped through windows and doors. That’s why we suggest having double or triple-pane windows installed instead of single-paned glass. Similar to its ability to block out external noise, single-pane glass does a poor job of trapping heating and air conditioning, while double and triple-pane glass can provide your home with the optimal insulation it needs to save you money.
