Benefits of New Double Pane Windows
Most insulated glass units consist of a minimum of two panes that have an insulating spacer, which separates each pane, and creates a seal between the space. Glass manufacturers typically seal this space with either desiccant, a material that absorbs moisture, or a warm-edge glass spacer technology, such as a super spacer. A high-grade sealant applied around the perimeter of the entire unit prevents condensation infiltration between the panes. To provide additional insulation between the two panes, some double pane window manufacturers inject argon or krypton gas into the airspace.
