Double Pane Windows
Throughout the course of a year, a home can experience a wide range of temperature changes. These changes put stress on the windows, which are the primary means of temperature exchange for a building. When windows aren't sealed properly, they leak out climate-controlled air, leaving a home drafty.
Glass Doctor® of Central Carolina offers insulated glass units, or IGUs, to balance and regulate the climate in Dunn homes. It's important to remember that double pane windows, which are a kind of insulated glass, can still have issues if the seals are broken. Clouded glass or condensation build up under the panes can be indications of broken panes in your home.
Benefits of Double Pane Windows
An insulated glass window consists of a minimum of two pieces of glass and, as the name suggests, an insulating space that separates the panes. This pocket of air is sealed and, in some instances, filled with an inert gas. The component that seals the pocket is called a spacer, it is filled with moisture absorbent material or is made from absorbent material.
The primary benefit of insulated glass is to lower heat transfer, resulting in a comfortable, energy efficient home. In the winter, IGUs minimize heat transmittance to maintain an even temperature. In the summer, IGUs decrease heat gain from the outside. With IGUs, you won't have to run the heating and air-conditioning systems as often, saving energy and money.
