Double Pane Windows
Extreme weather and rapid temperature changes wreak havoc on homes. Your home's windows, which are the top source of temperature exchange are constantly at risk. When a window is not properly sealed, it may leak climate controlled air. Glass Doctor® of Brevard County offers insulated glass units (IGUs) which keep the temperature in your home balanced. Though more energy efficient, a double pane window may still face similar issues if a seal is broken. Indicators of a broken seal include condensation between the panes and a milky appearance.
The Benefits of Insulated Glass
Insulated glass regulates the temperature in your home, all year round. In the winter, IGUs reduce the heat transmittance through your windows and in the summer, they reduce heat gain from outside. You'll experience an even temperature throughout your home with the help of double pane windows. This temperature regulation keeps your air conditioning and heating units from working hard, reducing the impact on the environment and your wallet.
Insulated glass units are made up of at least two panes of glass with an insulating spacer that separates them. These spacers may be filled with a specialized moisture-absorbing substance called a desiccant or with a warm-edge glass spacer. The edges of the glass are sealed with a high-grade sealant to keep condensation from developing between the panes. Some IGUs include krypton or argon gas, which is added to the airspace between the panes and provides further insulation.
