Double Pane Windows
The most basic function of a home is to protect its occupants from the extremes of Mother Nature-not just the wind and rain, but extreme temperatures too. Traditional single-pane windows allow drafts and other significant temperature changes to occur in your Pasco home. The glass specialists at Glass Doctor® of The Tri Cities recommend upgrading your home’s windows to double paned units.
The Benefits of Double Pane Windows
New double pane windows, also known as insulated glass units or IGUs, installed by Glass Doctor of The Tri Cities do more than increase the value of your Pasco home-they bring tremendous functionality to a room.
- Less Drafts: A properly installed and sealed window will eliminate drafts and cold or warm spots in rooms of your home. Not only will your home be more comfortable, but also your monthly utility bills will decrease.
- Improved Insulation: Double paned windows are designed with an insulating air space-often filled with an inert gas such as krypton or argon-between the panes. This space keeps the inside air from exchanging with the outside creating a comfortable environment in your Pasco home.
- Low-Emissivity Glass: In addition to the airspace, the glass itself can add functionality of it’s own. The materials on low-emissivity (Low-E) glass block radiant heat from the sun as well as stops the UV rays from damaging carpet, furniture, artwork and other home decor.
Double Pane Window Repair
If you already have double pane windows in your Pasco home, Glass Doctor of The Tri Cities can repair your existing glass. Double pane windows are durable and will last for a decade or more with the proper care and maintenance. If a milky or watery look appears on the inside of your double pane windows, the seal has failed due to faulty installation or old age.
If the seal has failed on your double pane window, the glass specialists of Glass Doctor of The Tri Cities can repair the seal. If repairing the seal does not rid your window of condensation, our specialists can install a new pane, keeping your existing window frame and grid.
