Even modern IGUs can wear out over time, which is why we also offer affordable double pane window repair services. If you have noticed that your windows have a milky look or that condensation is gathering between the panes, you have a broken seal that needs to be repaired. With a simple phone call to our experts, you can have your windows repaired in no time at all.
Insulated Glass Benefits
Insulated glass represents a unique product that is effective in both the heat and cold. During the winter months, IGUs will prevent heat from escaping through your windows and allow you to maintain a comfortable temperature without having to put your furnace into overdrive. When the summer hits and temperatures climb, IGUs will keep the heat outside, allowing your air conditioning system to run more efficiently. Not only will this save you money on your monthly utility bills, it will also cut down on long-term repair HVAC repair costs and prolong the life of your system.
Each insulated glass unit is constructed of two pieces of glass that are separated by an insulated spacer. Depending on the unit, the spacers will be filled with either a special material known as desiccant that is designed to absorb moisture or a warm-edge glass spacer. Both designs are thoroughly sealed and provide additional levels of energy efficient insulation.
Finally, the entire edge of each window is covered in a high-grade sealant that will prevent condensation. As added protection, certain units are filled with argon or krypton gas, which further increases the insulating properties of the windows. Glass Doctor of Helena provides local residents with access to the absolute best products and materials on the market.
