Double Pane Windows
Homes in the Phoenix Valley experience frequent outdoor temperature changes. The drastic fluctuation in temperature causes air conditioning units and heating systems to run much more than necessary, which directly affects utility costs. Glass Doctor® of Phoenix solves your efficiency issues with insulated glass units. Double pane windows, a type of insulated glass unit (IGU), provide an effective solution to help make your home more comfortable while saving you money.
What are Double Pane Windows?
Double pane windows are built with two pieces of glass and an insulating spacer separating the panes and sealing the space. Modern spacers, known as warm edge spacers, are filled with a desiccant or are made of sponge-like materials that absorb moisture. The IGU is secured with a high-grade sealant to further protect it from any moisture building up between the panes. Insulated glass units can also include krypton or argon gas infused in the airspace as an added level of insulation.
How Do Double Pane Windows Work?
Double pane windows are one of the best ways to ensure your home is as comfortable and as energy efficient as possible. These windows keep out the cold and heat by reducing the transmission of cold air in the winter and reducing heat gain during the summer. As a result, your heating system and air conditioning run less, saving you a significant amount of money.
Insulated Glass Repair
If your home already has IGUs, it's important to ensure they are functioning properly. If you notice a foggy appearance or condensation between the glass, your seals have failed and the outside air has invaded the space. This problem could have been caused by poor installation, inferior sealants, or extreme weather conditions. No matter the reason for seal failure, contact the specialists at Glass Doctor of Phoenix for a clear insulated glass solution.
