Double Pane Windows
Buildings in Oak Harbor and this area of the U.S. are built tough out of necessity because they are exposed to extreme weather and temperature changes. Over time, this kind of treatment takes its toll on exterior doors and windows. Windows are the primary source of temperature exchange, so you want the best insulated glass units (IGUs) and seals to keep climate-controlled air inside and drafty nature-affected air outside.
Glass Doctor® of Island County recommends you balance your interior climate with insulated glass. Over time, homes and offices, even with double pane windows, develop leaky or broken seals. If your windows have a milky appearance or condensation in places, your panes may have a problem.
Invest in the future
Your home is probably your greatest investment. It makes sense to protect your home, and it also makes sense to safeguard our environment by reducing energy consumption. Install low-emissivity (Low-E) glass to cut energy costs; emissivity measures infrared energy emission. You can welcome the sunshine into your rooms when you install Low-E glass and protect you and your family from dangerous UV rays.
Here’s how it works: Low-E glass solutions reflect the heat back into the room and lets the home benefit from solar energy. As heating and cooling costs continue to rise, an investment in thermal glass today saves money tomorrow. And double-glazing cuts energy loss in half while reducing greenhouse emissions.
How it works
An insulated glass unit is comprised of two or more pieces of glass and an insulating spacer that separates the panes of glass and seals the space between them. Spacers may have a special moisture-absorbing material called a desiccant, or use a warm-edge glass spacer. Warm-edge spacers have many designs, but the most effective are made from polymers with low metal content. To provide additional insulation, the unit can be injected with argon or krypton gas to prevent condensation from accumulating between the panes.
