Energy Efficient Window Repair
Maryland homeowners must outlast bitter winters and rainy summers, which expose your home to a variety of risks and expenses. If your window openings aren't properly sealed and insulated, you won't be able to protect your home from the effects of drafts, heat gain, moisture damage and other costly consequences. Glass Doctor® of Ellicott City helps Howard County residents protect their homes and reduce their energy costs with insulted glass units (IGUs).
These energy efficient installations include double and triple pane windows that increase your home's insulation and overall protection. Our specialists install, repair and replace IGUs in a variety of residential properties. If your windows show signs of damage or you want to upgrade your single pane windows contact us to learn more about our energy efficient window repair services.
Upgrading Your Window Glass
Over time, extreme temperature changes may shift your window frames and panes enough to break their airtight seals. When this results in heat gain or drafts, your HVAC equipment has to work harder to keep indoor temperatures consistent. Condensation buildup and exposure to precipitation may also increase your risk of mold and mildew growth.
IGUs reduce temperature exchange and prevent moisture buildup by doubling or tripling the number of panes in each window. Between each glass pane, a special spacer is installed to preserve the seal, maintain the insulating airspace and absorb any moisture that may build up. We also seal the perimeter to minimize this moisture exposure and keep your home airtight. If you still have single pane windows, we will replace them with energy efficient windows to save money.
Repairing Insulated Glass Units
If your window glass, window frame or protective sealant is damaged, your window will no longer protect your home from the effects of temperature exchange and moisture buildup. Cloudy or milky window panes are telltale signs of a broken seal, as is condensation buildup between panes. Our specialists provide energy efficient window repair services to restore your seal and curb appeal. We repair chips and cracks, replace missing sealant and make sure your IGU spacer is still doing its job.
Replacing Insulated Window Glass
At Glass Doctor of Ellicott City, we know you want to avoid the expense and hassle of removing and reinstalling an entire IGU. If one or more glass panes show signs of damage, we will do our best to replace these individual panes within their original frame.
We also offer 24-hour emergency repairs to restore your home's seal and safety if your glass breaks unexpectedly. Call Glass Doctor of Ellicott City today to schedule your energy efficient window repair or replacement service.
