Double Pane Windows

On the Gulf Coast, it can be smoldering one minute and chilly the next. As a result of these frequent temperature changes, your energy bill and comfort will suffer immensely. Instead of losing control of the climate in your home, Glass Doctor® of The Gulf Coast has the best solution: insulated glass units (IGUs). Insulated glass units, such as double pane windows, are designed to help regulate and balance the temperature inside your home.

Benefits of Insulated Glass Units

IGUs are designed to reduce heat transfer, which ultimately improves the energy efficiency and overall comfort of your home. In the summer, double pane windows reduce heat gain from the outside. In the colder months, insulated glass units keep a consistent temperature in your home by preventing heat transmission out of your home. As a result of these high-efficiency options, your heating and cooling systems will run less, which is the more economical and environmentally friendly decision.

How Do Double Pane Windows Work?

Insulated glass units are made up of at least two different pieces of glass and a spacer. The spacer simultaneously keeps the two pieces of glass separate and closes the space between the panes. These spacers are usually filled with special materials designed to absorb moisture. The outside of the double pane window is sealed with a high-grade sealant, which prevents condensation from accumulating in the space. Some double pane windows even have krypton or argon glass in the space between the panes to offer additional insulation.

Although having IGUs are designed to save you money and increase the efficiency of your home, it's imperative your double pane windows are working properly. If you see a milky substance or condensation between your insulated glass panes, you may need double pane window replacement. In either case, Glass Doctor of The Gulf Coast is your one-stop-shop for Gulfport's insulated glass units.
