Double Pane Windows
One of the best ways to save on your energy bills is to ensure that none of your windows are leaking. During the height of summer and winter, this is especially important due to extreme temperature changes, which often can be the cause of broken window seals.
Many homeowners have double pane windows to help protect against the loss of climate-controlled air. These can often be compromised as well. Here are two signs that your double pane windows are leaking.
- A whitish appearance around the edge of your window.
- Condensation appears between the windowpanes.
Insulated Glass Units
Glass Doctor® of Chattanooga specializes in window replacement and only uses the highest quality insulated glass units (IGUs). These units protect against the loss of climate-controlled air year round, which saves money. What makes the insulated glass units work so well?
- The IGU consists of two panes of glass with insulated space between them.
- Some IGUs have a desiccant, a material that is made to absorb moisture.
- Our team uses a high-grade sealant on each insulated glass unit. The sealant and the desiccant prevent moisture from accumulating between the two panes of glass, which over time can cause damage that leads to energy loss.
- Argon or krypton gas is sometimes included between the two panes of glass to provide extra insulation.
