Double Pane Windows
All homes experience varying temperature changes, which takes a toll on windows. Windows are the primary source of temperature exchange in any building. If they are not sealed properly, drafts will make the occupants uncomfortable and increase energy costs. Glass Doctor® of Kansas City will install insulated glass units (IGUs) in your home to regulate the interior temperature and climate. Even double pane windows succumb to drafts if seals break. If you notice condensation between the panes, or a milky appearance, it is time to call our experts.
Benefits of Insulated Glass
The main purpose of insulated glass is to keep out the elements and in the climate controlled air. This saves homeowners money, as your HVAC system will run less often, both in the summer and winter.
An IG unit is made up of two glass pieces, and a spacer to insulate and separate the glass. Spacers are generally filled with a material called desiccant, which absorbs moisture. Once the glass pieces and spacer are installed, the perimeter is sealed to help prevent condensation between the glass.
