Double Pane Windows

Indiana homeowners experience a wide range of temperatures throughout the course of an average year. From below-freezing temperatures in the winter to temperatures exceeding 100°F at the height of the summer, the temperature swings put stress on windows.

Windows are the primary source of temperature exchange for any given building. When windows aren't sealed correctly, the interior air leaks out. This leaves South Bend residents with a drafty home and high heating and air-conditioning bills. Glass Doctor® of South Bend, IN offers insulated glass units (IGUs) to balance and regulate the interior climate of your home.

How Modern Windows Work

An IGU has a minimum of two pieces of glass with an insulated space that separates the two panes and seals the space between them. Sometimes our expert glass teams use a special moisture absorbing material known as a desiccant or a warm-edge glass spacer to seal the space between the windows. Then our team seals the whole window with a high-grade sealant to keep condensation from building in between the panes. Some IGUs feature krypton or argon gas in the airspace to offer more insulation.

Double Pane Window Benefits

Double pane windows, a type of IGU, keep the heat out in the summer and cold out in the winter to make your Indiana home more comfortable and energy-efficient. In the winter, double pane windows cut down on heat transmittance through the windows to keep constant interior temperature. In the summer, double pane windows decrease exterior heat gain so that the air-conditioning runs less frequently, saving both energy and money.

Double Pane Window Care

Once the seal of a double pane window is broken, you face air leakage issues. Windows with a clouded appearance or condensation in between the panes often have broken seals. In the event that this type of damage occurs, call Glass Doctor of South Bend, IN to get your windows fixed as soon as possible.

Glass Doctor of South Bend, IN specializes in replacing older windows with new double pane windows. Depending on the type of windows, you may not have to replace the full window.
