Advantages of Insulated Glass for Your New Orleans Home
Insulated glass units (IGUs) keep conditioned air inside your house where it belongs. When it’s too hot or too cool outside, you don’t want heat-transmitting in or out through your window glass. To keep conditioned air inside your home, and your A/C or heating system running efficiently, double pane windows are an excellent solution.
With insulated windows, your home stays at your preferred temperature and the HVAC system doesn’t have to work overtime to keep the house comfortable. You start saving energy and money while enjoying greater comfort.
What is Double Pane Glass?
Insulated windows are made from two or more layers of glass with a space between them to provide an insulating effect. Glass Doctor of Greater New Orleans will recommend one of many types of insulating windows for your home. The main difference is in the space between the glasses, which might contain desiccant material (moisture absorbing substance) or argon gas. The glass may also be separated by a super spacer (non-conductive rubber or silicone-foam spacer), also called a warm-edge glass spacer. The space between the panes is permanently sealed and airtight.
