Double Pane Windows
The type of glass you choose for the windows of your home is more important than you might think. Old windows are a weak point in home insulation. The ability to let in natural light and fresh air also comes with the possibility for drafts and escaped climate conditioned air. If your windows are not properly sealed, these possibilities turn into a reality.
Homes are built to withstand the changing weather and temperature of the elements. However, windows need more attention. A broken seal will prevent the window from operating at its full potential. A clear sign of a broken seal is a foggy appearance or moisture collecting under the panes. Thankfully, Glass Doctor® of Durango installs insulated glass units (IGUs), the solution to the gap in your home's installation armor.
Double Pane Window Repair
Insulated glass units are beneficial in many ways. IGUs keep heat from exchanging no matter the season, whether you want to keep heat out or in you home, the IGUs will work to your advantage. The powerful seals prevent air from seeping in and keeps your home at a balanced temperature, making IGUs extremely energy efficient.
The IGU’s multi-pane design makes them more energy efficient. IGUs feature two or more panes of glass in a window and a division of air between the panes. This air space is the key to the IGU’s insulating qualities. To seal and separate each pane, spacers are inserted between them. A desiccant, a moisture absorbing material, fills the spacer or super spacer. The spacers expand and contract with the changing temperature.
The air space in between panes can be filled with argon or krypton gas. These inert gases allow for maximize window insulation. After a window repair or installation, Glass Doctors of Durango will close off the entire window with a high-grade sealant. This will guarantee that no moisture will collect between the window panes and your window will be safe from the elements.
