Double Pane Windows
Outdoor temperature extremes have a significant impact on the environment within your home. If your panes' seals are broken the heat of a sweltering summer day will fill your home with stifling air. Although your air conditioning system fights heat, it will have to work harder if your home is constantly flooded with waves of hot air. This means your air conditioner will be less effective and cause your energy bill to skyrocket. The same facts apply during the colder winter months. The single biggest culprit of thermal exchange in the home is an improperly sealed window. Not only do windows let outside air into a home, the panes also allow the air that you are paying to maintain escape. Glass Doctor® of Charleston, SC, offers you insulated glass units (IGUs). These are specially designed to enhance your indoor climate by minimizing thermal transfers./p>
Benefits of Insulated Glass Units
IGUs are all-weather windows that actively keep out the cold and hot air. By doing this, they allow you to maintain a constant temperature in your home without running your heating and cooling system at full force all day.
An IGU is composed of two or more pieces of glass and an insulating spacer that is held in place with a special seal. This creates multiple layers of protection against the outside air. Reinforce the pane protection by filling the space between the panes with argon or kyrpton gas.
Glass Doctor of Charleston, SC, offers you a wide range of double-pane and triple-pane IGUs that allow you to gain superior insulation.
Double Pane Window Replacement
Over time, the stresses of the outdoor environment wear down on all windows; this leads to broken window seals. No matter how many panes your window has, a broken window seal will cause costly air leaks. Signs that a window's seal is broken are easy to spot. They include drafts, condensation and a milky appearance between the panes.
Glass Doctor of Charleston, SC, will provide you with double pane window replacement services which restore your home's ability to keep you comfortable. In many cases, you won't have to have the entire window replaced. Our glass specialists are skilled enough to replace individual glass panes.
