When purchasing replacement windows, there are several key factors to consider before making your decision. One of those is which type of glass is best for your windows. Below, we compare double-pane windows and triple-panel windows so you can make the best choice for your upcoming window installation.

Benefits of Triple-pane Replacement Windows

Triple-pane replacement windows are made of three panes of glass. Great for areas or climates with extreme weather, triple-pane replacement windows are even more resistant to condensation than double-pane replacement windows. Windows with triple-pane glass can significantly reduce the amount of noise you hear through the window due to the extra glass pane and layer of insulation compared to windows with double-pane glass.


Triple-pane windows are ideal for rooms that face outside noises like busy streets, loud neighbors, and more. Because of the additional materials needed to construct them, triple-pane windows are heavier than double-pane windows and typically cost 25-30% more.


Window World Twin Cities offers triple-pane glass, which is the most energy-efficient glass on the market. Our triple-pane glass contains two layers of soft-coat Low-E glass. Low-emittance (Low-E) coating, is a thin metallic oxide layer that’s deposited on the window to suppress radiative heat flow.


The glass panes are separated by our non-conductive technology and contain a second urethane seal to keep the argon or krypton insulating gas secured between the panes. Window World triple-pane window glass also receives the highest energy rating from ENERGY STAR®. Our high-performance, triple-pane glass is available in all window options. If you are looking for the most energy-efficient windows for your home, triple-pane glass is your best option.

Benefits of Double-Pane Replacement Windows

Double-pane replacement windows are a great choice for homes in all climates. Window World double-pane glass comes standard in our replacement windows. Argon gas is inserted into the glass unit for insulation. Our double-pane windows are some of the most advanced glass options available that will not decrease the amount of light in your home.
