I'm replacing an exterior wooden door with a 6-lite wooden door. I have the option of insulated vs non-insulated glass and don't have a clue of what difference it realistically makes. Can anyone give me some advice?

the area encompassed by these few lites is insignificant from an eneergy standpoint unless you are in an extremely cold climate, which I doubt, or you wouldn't even be asking the Q.

but the reason for using the insulated glass in a exterior wood dor is this - if you have plain glasss, there will be more condensation of water on the glass. That water will become part of the door, to some degree as it runs down or soaks in. Water and wood are not a friendly match so the door will degrade and not last as long or be as pretty

Excellence is its own reward!
