Did you know that the human body can feel a change in temperature of less than 1°C?
With this in mind it becomes clear that we sensitive creatures should do all we can to maintain our ideal body temperature of 21°C.
In the depths of winter when the external temperature is -10°C and the internal room temperature is 21°C, the internal surface temperature of glass on a standard double glazed window will be about 8°C. This will lead to the double glazed window creating a cold spot which can lead to:
It is therefore imperative that the standard of window glazing matches the insulation elsewhere in your home, such as the roof and walls.
- the drawing of heat away from your body if you sit next to the window
- condensation running down the glass panes
If you take the same situation and temperatures as above and replace the double glazed windows with triple glazed units the internal surface temperature of the glass will be about 18°C – much warmer in comparison, and we humans can feel the difference!
We all know that double glazing makes a home more comfortable to live in, so triple glazing makes it even more cosy and warm.
The physics involved here have been worked out in Germany by the International Passive House Association and you can learn more by visiting www.passivehouse-international.org
At Internorm by Scotia over 90% of our customers ask for the supply and installation of triple glazing.
So if you want to stay warm this winter why not pick up the phone and speak to one of our friendly team who will be happy to answer any queries you have, or pop round to our fabulous showroom to see our fantastic range of triple glazing for yourself – the kettle is on!
