Double Pane Windows Is Your Solution for Challenging Weather

How Can Double Pane Windows Help Me?

Your home's windows are especially vulnerable to changes in weather, and in order for your home to remain at a comfortable temperature, you have to turn up the thermostat. By turning up the thermostat, your electricity, gas or oil bills can also rise. If you are looking for a unique solution to help reduce the detrimental effects of challenging weather patterns, then consider calling Glass Doctor of Elkhart to install double pane windows.

Double Pane Windows is known as insulated glass units (IGUs) and can reduce leakage of climate-controlled air. This means that during the winter IGUs trap the warm air inside and keep the cold air outside. It works reverse in the summer keeping the cool air in your home and keeping the warm air outside. By having IGUs, you do not have to turn on your cooling and heat unit as often, which helps lower your utility bills. It's also a great solution for keeping your Elkhart home more comfortable in all weather extremes.

How Do Insulated Glass Units Work?

By creating a barrier between two or more panes of glass, your windows can significantly reduce the heat exchange between indoor and outdoor temperatures. The space in double pane windows may even be filled with argon, krypton or other inert gases to provide additional insulation. To achieve the best results, the panes are held in place and the air pocket are sealed with a spacer, usually made of moisture resistant material called a desiccant.

Some windows employ special super spacers, made with low-conductivity material, to reduce the occurrence of condensation between the panes. Even though the initial installation of IGUs is more expensive than traditional single pane glass, the reductions in energy costs will more than make up for the additional cost.

How Do I Know If My Pane Is Damaged?

Insulated glass is not immune to time or weather-related damage. As the seasons change, the glass and sealants used will contract and expand, eventually leading to broken seals. Similarly, a single cracked pane will cancel the benefits of double pane windows.

The most common warning sign of a broken seal or pane window is condensation accumulation between the panes. Our glass service professionals can replace double pane glass without replacing the entire window, restoring clear vision and household comfort without the expense of complete replacement.
