Double Pane Windows
The number one source of energy loss and temperature exchange in any home is the windows. Equip your home with the most energy efficient windows on the market, insulated glass units (IGUs). Glass Doctor® of Reed City, MI, installs and restores IGUs, commonly known as double pane windows. Caring for your windows ultimately leads to a more comfortable and cost-effective home.
Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Double pane windows will keep your home comfortable, energy efficient and quiet.
IGUs help regulate the interior temperature of your home, which means your HVAC system will run less and save you money. Over time, your IGUs will pay for themselves in energy savings.
Glass Doctor of Reed City, MI, correctly installs double pane windows to ensure your home is protected from the winter chills and shielded from the summer heat. These windows put an end to those overheated spaces and to cold drafts by keeping your home more consistently comfortable.
Your home is your sanctuary. Don't let a noisy neighborhood keep you from enjoying a quiet night.
Increase Property Value
In addition to increasing comfort and saving money, double pane windows increase the resale value of your home. It's the investment that simply keeps on returning.
The most common type of IGU is a double pane window; units made up of a minimum of two pieces of glass and an insulating spacer are considered an IGU. The spacer separates the glass pieces of glass and seals the space between them. Spacers may be filled with a moisture absorbent material or made of non-conductive material. The outside of the unit is sealed to prevent any condensation from building up between the panes. Certain IGUs include krypton or argon gas between the panes to offer even more insulation.
Double Pane Windows and Broken Seals
While IGUs are highly effective, your double pane windows must function properly for you to realize the benefits. One of the most common problems associated with double pane windows are broken seals. If your IGUs have a broken seal, you may notice condensation or a milky white appearance under the panes. While most window repair companies will choose to replace the entire window, this may not be the best option for temperature regulation.
