Double Pane Windows
Glass Doctor® of Humble has the perfect solution for home and business owners who want to reduce energy costs. Replace your old, inefficient windows with new double pane windows and you'll notice a real difference in your monthly energy bills.
Per square foot, no other material surface in your home gains more heat in the summer and loses more heat in the winter than windows. The windows in a typical one-family home take up to 20% of available wall space. This translates into a high rate of energy exchange, which in turn leads to higher cooling and heating costs. Double pane windows, also known as insulated glass units (IGUs), are the best way to reduce energy expenses.
Insulated Glass Units
Double pane windows are made by combining two panes of glass, separating them with a spacer material and then sealing the edges. The airspace between the glass is most commonly filled with air, krypton, or argon. The high-grade sealant used to secure the edges prevents condensation from building up between each pane.
IGUs are designed to control and regulate the energy that is transferred back and forth between the interior and exterior of your Harris County home. They do this by controlling the heat that comes through the window, the heat flow by the movement of gas and the energy sent out by the sun.
The Benefits of Insulated Glass
Double pane windows keep the outside temperature where it belongs and make your home more comfortable and energy efficient. While energy savings is the most significant benefit to installing IGUs, they also:
- Help you burn less fossil fuel and create less greenhouse gas emissions, making them environmentally friendly.
- Offer noise reduction qualities, making them a perfect investment for homes and businesses located in urban areas or near busy streets or airports.
Glass Doctor of Humble specializes in insulated window glass replacement. In most cases, there's no need to replace your entire window, our experts will install IGU replacements in your existing frames, which means substantial savings for you!
Even if your home is already outfitted with double pane windows, it's important that you regularly check them for indications of condensation or a filmy appearance between the panes. This usually means a broken seal has allowed a leak to occur. Our double pane window specialists will expertly repair or replace those windows for you.
