Double Pane Windows
There are advantages to having four lovely seasons to enjoy every year, but there are also disadvantages. When homes experience climate extremes, those dramatic weather changes will stress windows, the weakest point of every structure. If your home’s windows aren’t sealed properly, your climate-controlled air will be exchanged for drafty exterior air.
To check for broken seals, look for condensation or a milky discoloration near the edges of your window panes. Glass Doctor® of Charlottesville, VA, offers double pane window replacements that will lessen energy loss while balancing and regulating your interior climate.
Insulated Glass Benefits
Energy efficiency is an important factor for cost savings now and sustainability later. That awareness and the need to reduce energy consumption and costs led to the development of insulated glass units. When it’s cold outside, insulated glass keeps your home’s interior warmer; when it’s summertime, your windows keep the cool air in your house, where you need it.
Insulated glass units (IGUs) have a minimum of two pieces of glass and use an insulating spacer that separates the glass panes and seals the space between each one. The spacers feature a moisture-absorbing desiccant to sustain the condition of dryness in-between panes. During double pane window replacement, the perimeter of the window unit is sealed to prevent condensation from accumulating between the panes. For greater insulation benefits, some IGUs include the addition of argon gas or krypton gas.
