Choose Insulated Glass Units
Double pane windows are a type of insulated glass unit (IGUs). As the number one barrier to heat transfer in your home, these windows act to keep your home at a constant temperature. The savings in heating and cooling costs can be impressive with properly maintained IGUs.
IGUs like double pane windows have two or more sheets of glass with a spacer between them. This spacer acts to seal the area between the two panes of glass and is filled with desiccant. This absorbs moisture resulting from condensation or other sources.
The border of the pane is outlined with a strong sealant. This keeps moisture out of the enclosed space. In addition, some IGUs are filled with special gases to increase the window's insulating properties.
