Double Pane Windows
Windows experience extreme temperature changes over the year, which puts a strain on the glass and will eventually break the seal in your double pane windows. You can identify this problem by checking windows for a mist between the panes. A broken seal leads to ineffective insulation, causing climate-controlled air leaks and high energy costs. At Glass Doctor® of Cypress, we will restore your windows, which will save you money and discomfort.
Opt for Insulated Glass Units
Insulated glass units (IGUs), including double pane and triple pane windows, are made up of two or more pieces of glass separated by an insulating spacer. Some spacers are filled with a desiccant to absorb moisture or use a warm-edge spacer for extra efficiency. Others have argon or krypton gas in the airspace to increase insulation. The unit is completely sealed to avoid a condensation buildup.
Benefits of a Double Pane Window
Double pane windows insulate your home and prevent hot or cold air from outdoors from entering. By switching to IGUs, you will rely less on your heating and air conditioning system. Contact us at Glass Doctor of Cypress to switch any double pane window in your home to a more efficient IGU. We are often able to leave the window frame in place, allowing the appearance of your home to stay the same and saving you money while lowering your energy bills.
