Getting Triple Glazed Performance out of Double Glazing


As energy requirements for windows continue to advance, the demand for higher performance windows is far greater than ever before. Many believe the only way to achieve the energy code is to use triple glazing in windows and that is not the case. We’re here to explain the truth behind the myth and illustrate how to achieve triple glazed performance out of double glazed windows.

One of the main reasons people replace their windows is to improve energy efficiency, resulting in lower heating and cooling costs and more comfortable living year-round.

Renovation Rescue


After it wrapped up, I had an unobstructed view of the home and I just stood & stared for 15 minutes. It was an amazing feeling.

When Terry Lanktree decided to replace his existing windows, he didn’t realize that simple choice would end up transforming the look and feel of his home. Thanks to the Centra team out in Victoria, Terry and his family now have a refreshing design that improves their homes safety, comfort, curb appeal, and overall experience.
