Double Pane Windows
Because your windows are the number one source of temperature exchange between your home and the outside environment, their condition drastically affects the inside temperature and the amount of money you spend on heating and air conditioning. A window with a poor seal will exchange your climate-controlled air for fresh drafts from the outside, and significantly reduce the comfort of your home.
Glass Doctor® of Rome provides a full range of insulated glass units (IGUs) that feature double pane glass to help control your home’s temperature. However, if a seal breaks these windows will be ineffective. Double pane window repair is available if you spot the telltale condensation or milky appearance in your window that shows a likely broken seal.
Double Pane Window Repair
An IGU consists of two of more pieces of glass separated by insulating spacers, often filled with a noble gas such as krypton or argon to provide superior insulation. A premium-grade sealant is used to seal the panes and the spacer in between and to keep condensation out. When this sealant is broken condensation enters into the spacer, providing you with an obvious outward sign that something is wrong with your window.
Glass specialists at Glass Doctor of Rome can repair your IGUs without having to replace your entire window. Our team can fit new pieces of insulated glass into your existing frames for a fraction of the cost it would take to replace the entire set.
If the window case is severely damaged we can replace the entire unit, upgrading it using modern materials. A new case will increase the overall energy efficiency, making for an excellent return on investment.
