Double Pane Windows
The scorching summers and powerful storms common in Fort Lauderdale put a tremendous strain on your windows. Windows that do not appear to be damaged might have lost their ability to prevent the passage of air through them. If you are struggling to keep your home comfortable, Glass Doctor® of Fort Lauderdale will install double pane, or insulated glass (IG), windows that will eliminate drafts and insulate your home from the hot, humid air of Florida's summers.
If you already have insulated double pane windows but they have become opaque or have condensation accumulating between the panes, you need insulated window repair or replacement. Windows showing these signs are not only unsightly; they are no longer effective at blocking the passage of air. Glass Doctor of Fort Lauderdale repairs these trouble windows, saving you the time and expense of having new units installed.
The Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Double pane windows consist of two panes of glass in a single frame. Between the panes there is an insulating spacer that both holds the panes apart and seals them to the frame. In some cases, an inert gas like argon or krypton is pumped into the space between the panes to increase the insulating quality. The unit is sealed into the frame using a high quality, long lasting sealant. When installed correctly and properly maintained, insulated glass windows make a huge difference in heating and cooling bills.
The layer of air or gas trapped between the two windowpanes acts as a buffer between the outside air and the air in your home. This makes your cooling system more energy efficient, allowing your home to stay cool even when the temperature soars outside. Also, well maintained insulated windows add to the curb appeal of your home and makes a great selling point if you are looking to put your home on the market.
Regardless of whether you are looking to have new double pane windows installed or need repair to the ones you already have, our staff of glass specialists assess the situation and guide your through the process to a more beautiful and comfortable home. Both window repair and window replacement might cost you less than you think and both will pay for themselves over time.
