Double Pane Windows
Windows from Glass Doctor® of Western North Carolina will help you reclaim the comfort of your Asheville home. Older homes are prone to vast shifts in air temperature, but with our amazing insulated glass units (IGUs), you can help regulate and maintain your indoor climate. Homes already outfit with double pane windows may still experience temperature fluctuations if the seals have broken. Broken seals allow for condensation to accumulate between the panes. When this happens, your windows are perfect candidates for an upgrade.
Condensation developing between your double pane windows is a sure sign of a failure in the sealant. Causes of seals failing vary. The most common are incorrect installation, faulty sealant or your double pane windows may have just borne the brunt of extreme temperatures or weather conditions. Whatever the case, your home comfort needs have not been met when you have this breakdown in your double pane windows.
An insulated glass unit is the ideal window. IGUs keep out both heat and cold. It's this modulation of temperature that will make your home much more comfortable and vastly more energy efficient.
During the colder months, Insulated glass units reduce the cold that's transmitted through your home’s windows. In the summer your IGU protection works by keeping heat from the outside of the home, out. The objective of an insulated glass unit is to maintain consistent temperatures year round. You will spend less on heating in the winter and less on air conditioning in the summer, ultimately saving both money and energy.
Insulated glass units are structured with two or more pieces of glass coupled with a spacer that insulates. The insulator works to separate the panes while still sealing the space between them. The perimeter is sealed with a high-grade bond, which prevents condensation. You have the option to add argon and krypton gases between the panes for added insulation on some IGUs.
