Double Pane Windows

Windows are a primary source for heat exchange due to outside temperature fluctuations. Hot and cold air seep into your home from outside; interior climate controlled air escapes. At Glass Doctor® of Brighton, we understand these conditions translate into increased energy use and higher bills for you. Our solution: window glass replacement with double pane or triple pane insulated glass units (IGUs) to minimize weather-related heat exchange.

When your home has aging double pane windows, you experience heat exchange problems as well. Weather extremes and aging cause window seals to deteriorate, break down, and display visible signs of age. When your double or triple panes take on a milky appearance or you notice condensation between the glass layers, your windows are already exhibiting signs of age and deterioration.

Insulated Glass Benefits

IGUs are uniquely constructed to increase your home’s functionality. As seasons change and weather extremes settle in, you notice the benefits.

  • Improved insulating ability 
  • Minimal influx of extreme temperatures
  • Decreased loss of climate controlled air 
  • Reduced heating and cooling system workload 
  • Lower heating and cooling costs

Manufacturers produce insulated glass units using two or three panes of glass with an insulating spacer between them. IGU spacers vary in construction. Some are filled with a desiccant that absorbs moisture. Others employ warm-edge technology that improves condensation resistance.

High-grade sealants hold the glass edges in place and enhance an IGU's ability to insulate and halt condensation accumulation. For further improved insulation, some IGU manufacturers inject argon or krypton gas into the space between panes.
