Double Pane Windows
The elements wreak havoc on your home, especially during Evansville's humid summers and brutally cold winters. All of these seasonal changes are hard on your windows, which play an important role in making sure you’re able to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home.
Windows exposed to extreme temperature swings often have seals that crack. This allows outside air to rush inside and make it difficult for you to maintain a comfortable temperature in your house. Luckily, Glass Doctor® of Evansville provides an array of window services for the Evansville area, including installing specially designed insulated glass units, known as IGUs.
If you notice that your windows appear milky or have condensation forming under their panes, you are suffering from broken seals that lead to frequent temperature fluctuations inside your house. Contact Glass Doctor of Evansville today to learn about our glass solutions.
The Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Insulated glass is engineered to reduce heat exchange. In the winter, IGUs keep the cold air out and the warm air inside. In the summer, the windows keep the cool air in and the hot air out. This helps you maintain a consistent temperature in your home and saves you money on heating and cooling costs.
IGUs are constructed with at least two separate panes of glass as well as an insulating spacer. The spacer is made of special moisture-absorbing material known as a desiccant, which ensures that your windows are less likely to develop condensation. In addition, the air inside the window, between the two panes of glass, is treated with an inert gas, usually argon or krypton, which also reduces the likelihood of condensation forming.
The end result is windows that keep your indoor air temperature consistent and your view to the outdoors crystal clear.
