This video demonstrates an ultra-easy method to determining how many panes of glass is inside of your window. Unfortunately, it’s tough for the average homeowner to see the third pane of glass without a professional’s guidance. But with this simple Triple Pane tip, you’ll easily be able to spot that third pane of glass in no time flat.

All you need is a window and a flashlight or lighter.

Three Lights, Three Panes
