The Importance of IGUs in Your Home
Double pane windows, a kind of insulated glass unit (IGU), consist of at least two pieces of glass and an insulating spacer. The spacer separates the two panes of glass and seals the space between them. Spacers may be filled with a special moisture absorbing material. The perimeter of the entire unit is sealed with a high-grade sealant to prevent condensation from accumulating between the panes. Some IGUs add argon or krypton gas to the airspace between the panes to provide additional insulation.
Double Pane Window Advantages
The benefits of double pane windows are undeniable. Homeowners who opt to upgrade their panes notice vast improvements, including:
- Better insulation: Double pane windows, especially those with insulating gas, offer superior insulation.
- Reduced noise: Better insulating properties not only help regulate the temperature in your home, they also help insulate against exterior noise, making them especially beneficial for homes near roads, train tracks or other sources of noise.
- Lower energy bills: Superior insulation from the windows decreases the amount of heat transfer in your home, lowering the work load on your heating and cooling systems, which is usually the highest source of energy consumption in the average home.
- Increase comfort: Decreased heat transfer will not only help lower your energy bills, but also increase the comfort level of your home. These windows will help eliminate uncomfortable hot and cold spots in your home, allowing you to enjoy all rooms without discomfort.
