The Importance of Window Glazing

When you think of your windows, you most likely think of the material of the frame—such as, wood, vinyl or aluminum. But the glazing (glass) is actually really important when it comes to energy efficiency!

When it comes to the glazing of the window, there are few different aspects to consider:

  • Thickness
  • Gas fills
  • Type

Window Glazing

How thick is the glass? Are there gas fills? What type of glazing is there?

Thickness of the Glass

In terms of energy efficiency, while the thickness of the glass may not be as important as the type of glazing and even the number of panes, it’s still important to think about. Generally, the thicker the glass, the better it can stop the flow of heat. Many modern windows come with thick glass, like 7/8 inch.

Gas Fills

A lot of windows with two panes have gas fills in between the panes, which can further improve energy efficiency. The gas is used to fill the space between the panes and resist more heat flow. Argon and krypton are typically used.

Type of Glazing

There are many different types of window glazing—insulated, low-E, reflective, etc. At the very least, you should try to get windows with insulated glass. Even better is glazing with low-E (low-emissivity) or reflective coatings. These coatings can help improve the overall energy efficiency of the window and help make your home more comfortable.

Insulated glazing helps improve the quality of windows—it can help:

  • Reduce condensation
  • Keep heat inside and cold outside in the winter
  • Keep heat outside and cool air inside during the warmer months
  • Improve the performance of R-values and U-values
