Double Pane Windows
Your home is designed to protect you from the external elements. Over time, these extreme weather changes can weigh heavily on the windows of your home, which are the top source for energy exchange on any structure.
If your windows are not properly sealed, your home may be regularly exchanging your controlled air for drafts. This exchange can cause your heating and cooling bills to increase, which means your windows are leaking money.
Glass Doctor® of Middletown NY provides insulated glass units (IGUs) to help regulate and balance your interior climate. However, double pane windows (a type of IGU) cannot properly insulate your home if the seals are broken. Trust our team to restore or replace your window panes to reinforce their insulating ability.
Gain the Benefits of insulated Glass
Insulated glass is designed to make your home more energy efficient and comfortable by keeping the heat and cold out. In the summer, IGUs minimize heat gain from the exterior of your home. During the winter, these innovative solutions reduce heat transmittance through your windows and help to keep a consistent temperature throughout your home. As a result of this reduction of energy exchange, your heating system and air conditioning should run less, which saves you money, energy and helps reduce your carbon footprint.
Insulated Glass Design
Insulated glass units are made with a minimum of two pieces of glass. They include an insulating spacer, which is tasked with sealing the space between the two pieces of glass and separating the panes. These spacers are typically filled with a super spacer or a special moisture absorbing material, which is called a desiccant.
The outside or perimeter of the IGU is securely sealed with a high-grade sealant. The sealant is designed to prevent moisture and condensation from building up between the panes. Many IGUs feature krypton or argon gas in the airspace for extra insulation.
Double Pane Window Repair and Replacement
If you have a double pane window with a damaged or broken seal, it's imperative to have your IGUs replaced or repaired. A few of the most common signs of a broken seal are condensation under the panes or a milky appearance.
