Modern Window Benefits
Double pane windows offer homeowners many benefits. It will make your home more comfortable as well as improving your home's energy efficiency. In winter, double pane windows reduce heat loss and maintain a consistent indoor climate. In summer, modern panes can reduce heat gain from outside. As a result, your homes heating and cooling systems run more efficiently saving energy and reducing your costs.
An IGU consists of at least two panes of glass separated by an insulating spacer, which seals the space between the panes. Spacers can be filled with a moisture control desiccant or a warm-edge glass spacer, such as a super spacer. The perimeter of the entire unit is sealed with a high-grade sealant to keep moisture from accumulating between the panes. Some IGUs add inert gasses such as argon or krypton to the space between the panes to improve the windows insulating properties.
