  • How Many Panes Are Best For My New Windows?

Many homeowners are unsure about the number of panes their glass windows should have. When they go shopping for windows, their main concern is the price. Purchasing windows based on their cheapness means you only get cheap windows with nothing else to offer.

When shopping for new windows for replacement, focus on the protection of your home as well as energy efficiency. Purchase windows based on the number of panes and the windows’ framing. Installing windows with 2-3 panes for every glass is the standard rule. 2-3 panes don’t allow air seepage; neither do they crack easily. They are also strong, a factor to consider if your home frequently faces tropical storms. If you genuinely value your peace of mind, especially when sleeping, 2-3 window panes are the best for your house for they effectively cancel exterior noise.
