Double Pane Window Repair
If you currently have double pane windows, also called insulated glass units (IGUs), you might have air leaks that you’re unaware of. Although it might not seem like a big deal, even small leaks can lead to increased heating and cooling bills. Double pane window repair is limited to the mechanical elements of the window, such as cranks and handles. But if the panes are leaking air, then it’s time to consider having the glass replaced.
Contact Glass Doctor Home + Business of Durham Region for an initial inspection to determine if your window needs repair or replacement.
When Should I Replace My IGU?
It might seem easier to just repair a problem before replacing a leaky double pane window, but repair isn’t always an option for this type of window. Consider replacing your IGU if:
- There is a significant and consistent condensation or fog between the panes.
- There is visible damage to the glass panes, such as chips or cracks.
- Damage to the window frame makes opening and closing the window difficult.
- The window is more than 20 years old.
Double Pane Window Replacement and Installation
Because repair isn’t always an option, Glass Doctor also offers replacement services for damaged double pane windows, as well as upgrades from single pane to double pane. In addition to increased energy efficiency, double pane windows also serve as another layer of noise insulation, keeping unwelcome noise out.
We offer insulated glass unit replacement and installation throughout the Durham region and surrounding areas. Your friends and neighbors trust us for all their glass repair and replacement needs, and you can too.
Why Insulated Glass Units?
Double pane windows are better for sound insulation and energy efficiency because of their design. In the 10mm of space between the two panes, there is a gas barrier, most commonly argon. The gas barrier and dual glass panes reduce the temperature exchange and noise transmission inside and outside the home. Who doesn’t want a warmer house in the winter, a cooler home in the summer, and a quieter home all year long?
