Double Pane Windows
Extreme weather events and even normal seasonal changes expose weaknesses in your home's exterior. A few drafty windows will not only make it feel impossible to maintain a constant, comfortable temperature in your home, they will also drive up utility bills. Fortunately, the experts at Glass Doctor® of Anniston can put new life back in your old windows with our double pane window repair and replacement services.
Modern Window Construction
Double pane windows are constructed in the style of insulated glass units (IGUs), which are designed to cut down on temperature transmittance. This means less stress on your heating and air conditioning system as it works to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
An IGU consists of at least two panes of glass separated by a spacer. The space between the panes is typically filled with a material known as desiccant, which provides insulation and absorbs moisture. Certain models also utilize krypton gas and air to improve performance. Finally, the window edge is covered with high-grade sealant. When this sealant starts to erode, your windows don't perform at an optimal level. The good news is Glass Doctor of Anniston can repair and replace faulty windows without having to install whole new windows.
