 Double v. triple glazing

Author: wvuguy (---.cinci.rr.com)
Date:   

I live in SW Ohio.....as a practical matter, will I enjoy sufficient additional performance benefits to justify the added cost of Low-E triple glazing over Low-E double glazing ??? The more I think about it, the more I'm wondering if triple glazing might be overkill, especially as I mull over the idea of living with the weight of four 70x32 casements with triple glazing.

FYI, my upcoming purchase is NOT motivated by energy savings. The key motivation is poor operation; half my present Lincoln casements won't open, and I also have air infiltration through several of the double hungs.
