Double Pane Windows
Keeping a home warm in the winter and cool in the summer takes a little time and effort. You need to monitor the thermostat, keep the doors and windows closed as much as possible and make sure that such things as the insulation and weather stripping are still doing their jobs. Still, for comfort's sake - less noise and fewer drafts - it is well worth accomplishing.
For this reason, consider the possibilities and benefits of having high-efficiency, double pane windows installed in your home by Glass Doctor® of Elko. These high-tech accessories for your home provide a wealth of benefits including the following:
The number one drain on a comfortable temperature in a home' s living space is the introduction of drafts, whether through an open door or poorly maintained insulated windows. Installing insulated glass units (IGUs) will decrease unwanted drafts and balance the temperature in your home.
Reduced Noise Pollution
Double paned windows significantly reduce the amount of exterior noise pollution that can enter the living space of your home. Since audio is also vibrational, the space in between the interior and exterior panes acts as a dampening agent and eliminates almost all of the noises from outside.
More Even Temperatures
Low-emissivity (Low-E) double pane windows decrease the convective and radiant heat that passes through a windowpane. Because there are fewer hot and cold spots in the rooms of your home, the thermostat is not constantly reacting to frequently changing conditions, resulting in a more balanced temperature in your home.
Lowered Utility Bills
Double pane windows significantly aid in the retention of “conditioned” air in your home throughout every season. In fact, the homeowner benefits to such an extent on lowered utility bills that, in many instances, these windows pay for themselves in seven years or less. They are simply an excellent investment in your home and provide a higher resale value.
Insulated Glass Replacement
A major concern for homeowners is the cost of repairing high-tech windows. Our specialists can replace just the glass and keep the existing grid and frame of the original window, saving money and time. In some cases, a full window replacement is necessary. Glass Doctor of Elko offers a variety of energy efficient replacement windows for your home.
