Double Pane Windows
Double pane windows have now become an industry standard. Utilizing two panes of glass separated by a spacer and sealed on all sides to provide an airtight dead space between the glass layers, insulated glass units (IGUs) are capable of significantly reducing the transference of heat and cold through a your Raleigh home’s windows.
Windows are the source for most temperature exchange in any building structure. Upgrading your home’s windows to double pane insulated glass will not only increase occupant comfort, but also lessen the amount of energy required to run your heating or air conditioning systems. Installation of double pane windows, which is one of our specialties here at Glass Doctor® of Raleigh, can help you save money!
Double Pane Window Installation
Insulated glass may consist of double pane windows or even triple pane windows. The air space sealed in between panes is sometimes substituted by an inert gas, such as argon or krypton, which adds further insulating value to the window. When double pane windows are installed in place of existing single pane windows you will notice an immediate improvement in interior comfort.
If the window’s seal is compromised, which may occur after a period of time due to the expansion and contraction of the spacer separating the panes, the window loses its insulating capability. A broken seal is often obvious by the appearance of condensation on or between the panes. A broken seal must be repaired or replaced in order to return the integrity of a double pane window.
