Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Reduced Temperature Transfer
The primary appeal of double panes is the reduction of transferred heat from the outside or inside of the house. In either extreme of weather, hot or cold, we use air conditioning to set our surroundings the way we want them. The biggest threat to losing your conditioned air is your windows, and double paned windows add a much needed resistance to this ‘bleeding’ of air.
The impact of this effect will manifest exactly where you want it to; your wallet. The increase in efficiency results in heating and air units having to work a lot less to maintain your desired temperature, and as a result you reap in savings.
Reduced Noise Pollution
In addition to being a huge benefit to climate control, double pane windows also assist in mitigating unwanted ambient sound or noise pollution. The added layer of air between the panes literally absorbs a portion of incoming ambient sound, resulting in a quieter and more peaceful home.

Signs to Look For
Some instances don’t really need to be pointed out, but there are some signs of a failing insulated glass unit (IGU) you may want to be aware of that may require a replacement. If you notice undue condensation on the inside of your panes that lasts beyond odd weather or temperature changes, or the buildup of a white film, it is likely the seal on your unit has failed and needs replacing.
What Can be Done?
Double pane window repair often does not require the replacement of the entire window unit. In many instances the window can be replaced independently of the window frame, which is a fairly quick and simple process.
