Double Pane Windows
A home's windows need to be able to stand up to severe weather conditions throughout the year. The windows on a home allow for temperature exchange between a building's interior and exterior. If the windows' seals have broken, the panes were poorly installed or the window has been damaged, then the home's energy efficiency will drop in performance. To keep your windows airtight and maintained, turn to Glass Doctor® of Millersburg Ohio.
Double Pane Window Performance
Double pane windows, a type of insulated glass unit (IGU), are effective at maximizing a home's energy efficiency. However, if they develop gaps and openings that allow air to seep in or out, they will compromise efficiency and cause a home's HVAC system to work harder to maintain a comfortable interior climate. Windows showing condensation collecting between the panes or a milky film have broken seals that require pane replacement. Glass Doctor of Millersburg Ohio specialists are trained to spot the early window deterioration, so call our team for a professional consultation if you have any concerns
The glass used in window manufacture can feature special insulation allowing for more control over heat transmittance. Any homeowner living in Millersburg understands the temperature swings each season brings. IGUs installed in a home will save homeowners hundreds of dollars in utility bills over the course of a year.
The Anatomy of a Double Pane Window
A double pane window is composed of two separate sheets of glass with an air space in between. Usually, desiccant, a material that absorbs any moistness in the air space, is placed along the bottom of the window pane. Also, a sealant is installed all the way around the window to offer further protection against air seepage and condensation.
