Conwy Valley, in Llandudno, has a range of triple glazing, which differs from other types of glass. A long time ago, the only use of a window was to let light in. Window glazing is now expected to help with the thermal properties of homes, and triple glazing outperforms the rest. Triple glazing was first introduced in countries that suffer from harsh winters. Triple glazing can reduce the heat loss through a window three times more efficiently than double glazing, with sound insulation being vastly improved as well.
Double glazing consists of two layers of glass that have an air gap between them. Triple glazing provides three layers of glass and two air gaps. The glass can be treated to make it even more energy efficient, and the air gap can be filled with an inert gas such as argon, krypton or xenon to help reduce any heat loss.
U value is a measure of heat loss in a building element such as wall, floor or roof. The higher a U value, the worse the thermal performance of a building is. A low U value normally indicates high levels of insulation. A lot of higher U values can be caused by poorly insulated windows. By installing triple glazed windows, you can help to have an incredibly low U value, even more than double glazing.
Triple glazing provides a number of advantages:
When it comes to your home or business, your choice of glass can go a long way in lowering fuel bills and carbon footprint. Because of the house staying warmer, less energy is needed for heating it, making it not only good for your pocket but also for your carbon footprint. We source the best glass and frames to provide you with the most energy efficient and ecologically friendly double glazing. The thermal efficiency of triple glazing means you spend much less on heating your home. Thermal glazing may cost a bit more than double glazing to install, but it will definitely save you more money on heating in the long run.
Double glazing can create cold patches in a house due to the higher heat loss compared to walls and doors. This problem can be made worse by modern insulation, as better and thicker wall insulation can mean that windows become much colder compared to the rest of the house. Triple glazing can be a great solution to this problem, as it reduces the difference in heat loss between the windows and the rest of the building, helping you to save even more money.
Our windows are A rated for thermal efficiency and are recommended by the Energy Savings Trust, ensuring they are as energy efficient as possible. Up to 20% of heat loss in the home is through drafts and ventilation. By installing Conwy Valley home improvements, you can save £100’s per year, even more than double glazing.
Decreased noise – The thickness and highly efficient seals of triple glazed windows insulates your home from exterior noises. This makes them a great option for people living near busy roads or airports. If you need a space in your house for relaxing, or simply for work that needs doing, having a room which has no excess noise can make it a great place to spend to time in. Our triple glazed windows can contribute towards a more relaxing home.

If you have a part of your house you like to use to get away from noise and other distractions then triple glazing can be a good option. Because of the way triple glazing reduces noise and increases the time a room can stay warm, it can be ideal to install it in a room meant for relaxing in or getting work done.
Triple glazing is a very attractive feature to prospective buyers. By having our triple glazed windows installed in your home, you set it apart from others on the market. A lot of buyers look for potential office space so they can get work done while at home. By having triple glazing, you can make a space that is clear from any excess noise that may distract a person wanting to work. This, combined with the heating bill savings, makes triple glazing a great investment.
Triple glazing uses
Triple glazing is best used for windows, roof lights, or walls of glass. Triple glazed units weigh more than double glazing does, making it unsuitable for any horizontal items. Large patio doors, sliding doors and folding doors can easily be fitted with double glazed glass, we would simply adjust the frame size to accommodate the extra weight.
