The Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Double pane windows, the most common IGU, regulate the exchange of heat into and out of the home. By reducing heat transfer, your home will remain warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Home HVAC systems are more energy efficient because they do not have to continually run to maintain a constant temperature within the home.
The reasons double pane windows are able to offer a higher level of efficiency is the window structure. Double pane windows have a layer of air between the panes. This air space reduces heat conduction, ultimately insulating your home. Each window is thoroughly sealed, preventing air leaks. If the seal is compromised, condensation forms reducing visibility and indoor comfort. An insulated windows’ airspace is often filled with krypton or argon gas to provide maximum insulation. A spacer holds the panes in place and keeps the layer of air from safe from outside influences.
