Double Pane Windows
The harsh weather extremes of the Northeast take a toll on your home's windows. Damaged windows, although they may look fine, are the number one way that outside air finds its way into your Bowie home. If you are struggling to keep your home comfortable in any season, Glass Doctor® of Beltsville provides glass services to ensure your windows operate effectively.
If desired, our glass specialists will install double pane, or insulated glass, windows to seal your home up tight. These windows are designed specifically to prevent the transfer of air either into or out of your home. If you already have double pane windows but have noticed a decrease in comfort levels or condensation between the panes, Glass Doctor of Beltsville will assess the situation and determine whether you need a full window replacement or if window repair will solve the problem for you.
Advantages of Double Pane Windows
Double pane windows consist of two panes of glass and an insulated spacer in a single frame. Our spacers contain a substance known as a desiccant, which absorbs any moisture that finds its way in between the panes of glass to prevent the build up of condensation. Sometimes an inert gas such as krypton or argon is pumped into the space between the panes before it is sealed. These gasses act as an additional layer of insulation, which is more effective than air alone. To complete the installation, a high quality sealant is used to secure the window frame and prevent leaks.
Once properly installed, insulated glass windows are extremely effective at keeping the outside air at bay. Preventing the transfer of heat in or out of your home will go a long way towards making your home energy efficient. More than reduced utility bills, these windows will increase the beauty and value of your Bowie home.
Our glass specialists will come to your home and inspect your current windows and suggest a course of action. Whether it is window replacement or repair, you will be delighted to have Glass Doctor of Beltsville take care of all your window needs.
