To avoid their unpleasant symptoms, allergy sufferers often resort to locking themselves in their houses and hoping for the best throughout the spring. Unfortunately, low-quality windows offer no protection against pollen, mould and other allergens. The allergy sufferer will feel just as uncomfortable in their home as if you were outside. Luckily, Glass Doctor¨ of Edmonton has the solution.
Allergy Relief from a Double Pane Window
Insulated glass units (IGUs), such as a double pane window from Glass Doctor of Edmonton, will seal your home from the elements. Unlike a single pane window, IGUs prevent the condensation that leads to mould growth inside your home. Plus, when closed, they do not leave the slightest gap for pollen to enter.
Upgrade Your Windows
Double pane windows that are too old may no longer function properly. If you notice condensation between the panes or feel an airflow, your double pane window most likely has a broken seal and is no longer providing you with proper insulation. It is particularly important to repair windows in bedrooms, otherwise you'll be exposed to allergens all night long.
