If all existing commercial building windows were replaced with triple pane windows, it would save around 1% of the total energy usage in the US, according to 2012 estimates from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). Put into perspective, that is roughly equivalent to how much energy is used by 5.5 million homes. Unfortunately, replacing current low-performing single pane windows with triple glazing is a high-cost expenditure that isn’t plausible for many building owners.
