Double Pane Windows
Cold drafts originating from your windows and condensation forming between your window panes are both signs that you should contact Glass Doctor® of Grand Forks for repair. Insulated glass units (IGUs) are designed to regulate the temperature of your home, keeping indoors more comfortable for you and your family. However, after several years, the seal in these windows can break, rendering them ineffective.
At Glass Doctor of Grand Forks, we are able to repair IGUs, often without replacing your frames. This is less expensive and also keeps the original facade of your home.
What Are Insulated Glass Units?
If you currently have another type of window other than an IGU, you can still benefit from our window replacement service at Glass Doctor of Grand Forks. Our IGUs consist of two or more panes with an insulating spacer between. Some spacers are filled with a desiccant to absorb moisture whereas others are warm-edge glass spacers, such as super spacers.
Benefits of Double Pane Window Repair
New double pane windows from Glass Doctor of Grand Forks have a huge number of advantages over regular windows, including the following:
- Energy efficiency: IGUs go beyond offering better comfort. By reducing heat transmission in winter and heat gain in summer, double pane windows allow you to use your heating and air conditioning system less, resulting in significant monetary savings.
- Noise reduction: Whether you live on a busy street where you are frequently bothered by the noise of traffic or you want to play loud music but are worried about disturbing your neighbors, double pane windows will help by reducing the amount of noise that passes in and out of your home.
- Reduced condensation: Regular windows often suffer from condensation or frost on the panes. High-performance IGUs can eliminate both of these issues through their warmer interior surface.
- Reduced fading: When you choose a double pane window repair service from Glass Doctor of Grand Forks, we can apply a UV filter to your windows to avoid furniture fading from exposure to sunlight. This will also keep your family safe from UV rays when sitting near a window. Best of all, our UV filters do not affect the amount of light that enters your home nor views to outside.
You can receive all of the above benefits when you opt for a double pane window repair from Glass Doctor of Grand Forks. If your windows are underperforming, contact us today to schedule an appointment and start enjoying a more comfortable home, higher energy savings and noise reduction. Our specialists will be happy to help you choose the right kind of double pane windows for your needs and budget.
