Double Pane Windows
Glass windows make a considerable difference in insulating and protecting your home from the elements. Double pane windows, a type of insulated glass unit (IGU), are designed to maintain a comfortable indoor air temperature no matter the season. During the winter, IGUs lower the amount of heat lost through the glass. During the summer, IGUs reduces the amount of heat absorbed from outside. As a result, your house's indoor air temperature remains constant and your house requires less heating and air conditioning use.
Insulated Glass Units Structure
An IGU is composed of at least two layers of glass with an insulating space in between the panes. The spacer in between the panes is usually filled with either an absorbing material known as a desiccant or warm-edge nonmetal structural foam known as a super spacer. In addition, the IGU's perimeter is lined with a resilient sealant material, which prevents condensation from accumulating in between the layers as well as further heat transmission.
