Should you get double pane or triple pane windows in Saskatchewan? Although the basis for this question is straight forward, it is perhaps not the right question to ask when thinking about energy efficiency and comfort in your home.
Regardless of the number of panes, the windows should have performance ratings to be considered efficient in your province. In order to be considered efficient in Strasbourg and Saskatchewan in general, replacement windows should have a minimum ER rating of 29 and meet other criteria for climate zone 2 performance.
In reality, both double pane and triple pane windows can be made to match those performance requirements. Obviously triple pane windows should be more efficient and offer more comfort, but that isn’t always the case. When shopping for new windows consider companies that carry ENERGY STAR rated and CSA certified product. These organizations test and rate window products for performance and rate them based on different climate zones in Canada.
