Double Pane Windows
While all Mount Pleasant homes exchange some heat and air with the outside environment the less this happens the better; a highly insulated home is the more energy-efficient, cost-efficient and comfortable. An improperly insulated home will let more hot air in or out which will put more pressure on the air conditioning or heating system and create uncomfortable drafts. Glass Doctor® of Mount Pleasant, MI installs and replaces your home windows with insulated glass units (IGUs) which will increase the insulation in your home.
Insulated Glass Benefits
IGUs increase the efficiency of your home in both winter and summer by reducing the amount of heat transmitted through your windows. In the summer you gain less heat from outside, keeping your home cool while reducing the use of air conditioning. In winter IGUs help keep warm air inside your home, saving you money spent on keeping your Mount Pleasant home warm and comfortable.
The secret to an IGU's insulation power is its build. These windows feature multiple panes. Between the panes, air is used to reduce heat exchange. A spacer seals the airspace and tightly holds each pane in place. For additional insulation, argon or krypton gasses can be added to the air space.
