Glass Benefits|Why Double-Paned Windows Are Better

Double-paned windows have two panes of glass set into each individual frame in a window. The two glass panes are separated, creating an air pocket made to better insulate your home.

Many people wonder if double-paned windows are worth the investment. In response, the glass specialists at Glass Doctor® have outlined some of the main benefits, including everything you need to know about double-paned windows. Learn more about our affordable double-paned installation services.  

Less Window Condensation

If you've ever lived in a home with more commonly used single-paned windows, then you are familiar with the heavy condensation they accrue during the winter months. This happens because of the differing interior and exterior house temperatures. While condensation on a window may seem as a small matter of annoyance, it is actually a sign of a much larger issue-cold temperatures entering your home via single panes, thus creating an issue of inefficient heat transfer in your home. 

Glass Doctor is a leading specialist in double-paned window installation and replacement. If you have pre-existing double-paned windows with damaged glass, we can install double-paned glass replacements in your frame at a surprisingly low and cost-efficient price. 

More Insulated Windows

Double pane windows offer your home superior insulation by keeping the winter's cold, as well as the summer's heat out. Additionally, a well-insulated home usually means a more energy-efficient home-which means there are no overworked heating and cooling systems. All of these factors combine result in the big benefit of a lower energy bill.  

One important factor to be aware of is that if the seals on your double-paned windows are broken, then so are the installing properties of that window unit. Some signs of a broken or damaged seal include:

  • Condensation between the glass
  • Increasing rust build up
  • Windows that appear foggy or milky 

No worries, Glass Doctor is able to replace the one specific problem pane in order to fix the entire window, and we can do it all at a time that is most convenient for you. 

Panes That Keep Noise Out

The world outside your windows can be noisy. From railroad tracks, busy roads, to loud neighbors, there are many sounds around to push through your single-paned windows and disrupt your private sanctuary. With double panes, all of that could change. The extra layer of the window works at keeping exterior noise out and your internal (hopefully peaceful) noise in. 

Double-paned windows are definitely worth the investment you put into them. They not only increase the comfort of your home and decrease bill costs, but they also have the potential of raising your home's value. 

At Glass Doctor, we understand that pricing awareness is important. That's why we offer upfront pricing on our services and products. Give us a call today at 855-603-1919 to learn more about our prices and service options.
