Double Pane Windows
Electricity and gas continue to increase in cost, so if your home isn't properly sealed and insulated, you are pouring money out your windows. Stop your air conditioner and furnace working from overtime. Glass Doctor® of Lincoln will solve Lincoln homeowners problem by installing, repairing and replacing insulated glass units (IGUs) that are much more efficient than standard windows.
Benefits of Insulated Glass for Lincoln Homes
Small gaps and cracks in your window cause heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter, but poor insulation leads to the same problem. Even if your home is completely airtight and your walls and attic are padded with fiberglass or cellulose insulation, your windows still play a primary role in causing drafts and condensation buildup. Windows must be properly sealed around the edges to block air and moisture, but the panes themselves should also resist heat and cold.
Rather than a single pane, IGUs consist of two or three glass panes. In each air space, we install a spacer that absorbs moisture and holds the panes in place. At Glass Doctor of Lincoln, we also offer IGUs with argon or krypton gas between the panes to enhance the insulating capabilities.
Repairing Insulated Glass in Lincoln
Of course, maintenance is necessary to keep any window effective. Over time, temperature changes cause structural shifts and compromise your home's seal, primarily because they expand and contract your door and window frames. Insulated windows are vulnerable to this too, especially during Lincoln's freezing winters.
It takes an expert eye to catch every little gap throughout the year. If you notice any condensation between your panes, or if your insulated windows start to look milky or foggy, the seal is most likely broken. Cracks and chips are another telltale sign that it's time to fix your windows. Glass Doctor of Lincoln is here to help, so contact us before the damage worsens.
Our double pane window repair services include convenient replacement options for your IGUs. Rather than replacing the entire window if it's foggy or cracked, our specialists will remove the damaged panes, clean and re-sealing the spacer, and install fresh panes. Afterwards, we re-seal the space between the window and its frame, ensuring a perfect fit.
