    You're thinking about investing in a complete replacement of your windows and doors, but there is some confusion about what will work best in your home. People are recommending that you look into options for single, double, or triple pane windows and you are starting to get a headache. Instead of dealing with the "pane", use this handy information to help you decide which type of window is best and what it will bring to the table.

    Single Pane Windows

    This one is the most simplistic of window designs, since it comes with a single pane or panel of glass. The term is used to describe more than one window style. For example, you could have one large single pane that is fixed in place. That means the window cannot be opened or closed.

    Another example would be a style that includes two sashes with at least one of them that can be raised and lowered. There is still only one panel of glass in each sash, so it's classed as a single pane style.

    While this is one of the more common styles, it may not be the best in terms of keeping the home interior at a comfortable temperature. Of all the options, this one allows more transference of heat and cold air outside than the rest, especially if those panes are not coated. You would do well to consider a windows replacement in Oakville that makes use of another design.

    Double Pane Windows

    This design utilizes two panels or panes of glass that contain a gas in between them. You will find that vinyl windows often come in this design. The combination of a double layer of glass along with the gas in between will save a lot of money in utility costs. Like the single pane styles, you can use double panes in many different window types. Don't worry about obscuring your view. The fact that there are two panels of glass and a layer of gas in between will still allow you to look out the window and observe whatever is happening in the front or back yard.

    Triple Pane Windows

    If the plan is to ensure the windows offer the highest level of energy efficiency, you want to look into the idea of triple pane windows. This design is similar to that of double pane windows, except there is one more layer or pane of glass present. Assuming that the other window elements are maintained properly, you can rest assured that heating and cooling your home will cost much less. In addition, the glass is usually reinforced, so it will provide an added measure of security to the house.

    Before deciding that any design or style is the only viable solution for your home, talk with a window contractor and go over details like materials, pane size and number, and what a certain type of window would do in terms of keeping the energy bill lower and making the house look better. After you have all the facts, it will be easier to make the choice that's right for your home.
