Double and triple glazing is put together as a sealed unit. The gap between each pane of glass works as an insulating barrier, this gap can be filled with an argon or krypton gas for extra insulation.
People can often be miss lead into thinking triple glazing is the better option where in fact quality double glazing can be just as effective as triple glazing without the extra weight or cost!
Usually triple glazing will be the better option if your property is situated near a busy road or in loud surroundings therefore would benefit from better sound insulation which triple glazing would offer.
Therefore the answer to this question depends upon your home, location and overall levels of insulation.
