Double Pane Windows
The constantly fluctuating outside temperatures can make it difficult to control the inside temperature in older homes. Double pane windows, otherwise known as insulated glass units (IGUs), combat the outside climate and help maintain a consistent temperature inside keeping your home more energy efficient. If you notice drafty rooms caused by your old windows, it’s time to contact the glass specialists at Glass Doctor® of The Bay Area in Hayward.
A “cloudy” window is caused when the seal in the pane has failed triggering the vacuum to escape and allowing moisture to collect in between the panes. Poor installation or extreme climate changes can cause the seal to fail.
Insulated Glass Repair
Insulated glass units aid your home in reducing your electricity bill through properly insulating your windows. An IGU is comprised of a spacer in between two pieces of glass and a seal, which fillings the gaps between the spacer and glass. Some spacers are filled with a desiccant otherwise known as a warm-edge glass spacer.
A high-grade sealant is put around the perimeter of the IGU to keep moisture and outside air from getting into the panes.
