Double Pane Windows
Double pane windows boost home values, especially in the Pensacola area. Florida residents don't undergo the freezing temperatures Northerners do, however double pane windows are extremely effective at keeping heat and humidity outside while the air conditioner does its job inside. Windows that experience the tolls of the southern sun wear down quickly. No matter what your windows' need, Glass Doctor® of Pensacola will solve your insulated glass window issues.
The reason a double pane window is an effective insulator is its build. The glass forms a tight seal with the frame and at least two layers of glass. In between the glass panes is the air pocket, which insulates the window. Sometimes this space is filled with krypton or argon gas. A spacer keeps the panes a fixed distance apart, we use spacers filled with moisture absorbing called desiccant. The spacer creates a tight seal and prevents the buildup of moisture inside the panes, so that the glass panes don't become obstructed by condensation. The spacer and the glass panes are sealed off and the whole assembly is sealed into the window frame, making it secure and weather-tight.
Window Replacement and Repair
If insulated glass has been cracked or broken, the window will need to be replaced with a similar or upgraded panes. However, if the damage is limited to a broken seal, a faulty spacer or anything short of broken glass, there is a good chance the window only needs to be repaired, and full replacement will not be necessary.
If the window does not appear to be broken, but a cloudy or milky appearance is observable in the window, this is often an indication that moisture has accumulated inside the window assembly and a repair is called for. Condensation inside the windowpanes is also an indication that the integrity of the window has been compromised, and that some kind of repair is necessary to restore it to full effectiveness.
