If you are in the process of collecting quotes for a home improvement project – or are about to embark on some minor refurbishments – you might be confused about the relative merits of uPVC double or triple glazing for your Essex home. Is one better than the other, or are the differences separating these two types of products negligible enough not to matter?
When comparing uPVC double and triple glazing for your Chigwell property, you’ll need to think carefully about the energy performance levels of the product you’re thinking about buying. Although uPVC double or triple glazing will keep the warm in and the cold out, they’ll return different U value scores – so one is likely to be better than the other.
According to current Building Regulations, any double-glazed window you install should return a U value no higher than 1.6 (the lower the score, the more thermally efficient the product). When researching the best uPVC double or triple glazed windows in Essex, you should use this metric to determine whether your product is of sufficient quality.

Manufacturing techniques for both double and triple glazing for Essex homes have improved in recent years. Advancements in technology – such as low-emissivity coatings or gas-filled cavities that prevent heat leakage – mean that you’ll benefit from a warmer and more thermally efficient home regardless of whether you choose uPVC double or triple glazing.
When comparing uPVC double and triple glazing, bear in mind that the former will provide your Chigwell home with a surface temperature of circa 11°C and the latter 16°C. This means triple glazing is better at keeping in heat – but only if the rest of your property uses an equivalent level of insulation. If it doesn’t, you won’t necessarily notice a benefit.
