Double Pane Windows
Homes throughout the Berrien County area experience all extremes of weather, from blistering summer heat to bone-chilling winter cold. Frequent changes in temperature and weather put a serious strain on a home's windows, potentially creating leaks and making it very difficult to control the climate inside your house.
Windows are the number one place in any building where temperature exchange is likely to occur. Damaged or improperly sealed windows allow drafts to enter your home while climate controlled air escapes. The specialists at Glass Doctor® of Buchanan, MI, install and repair high-efficiency insulated glass units (IGUs) to help you reduce energy costs and balance your interior climate.
Structural Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Insulated glass units like double pane windows consist of two or more pieces of glass, triple pane windows are also available, with an insulating spacer that separates the panes and keeps the area between them sealed up tight. In many cases, spacers are filled with a desiccant, a special moisture absorbing material, for even greater efficiency. Warm-edge glass spacers are also available in many of our windows.
