Double Pane Windows
Weather takes a toll on your windows. Since windows are the single greatest source of temperature exchange in any building, the frequent changes in weather and temperature experienced by homes in the Shreveport area make it hard to heat and cool your home efficiently. Poorly sealed windows allow drafts to enter your home while conditioned air escapes. The specialists at Glass Doctor® of Shreveport provide insulated glass units to help keep the climate inside your home just the way you like it.
Double Pane Window Features
Double pane windows, a type of insulated glass, are among the most energy efficient window options for your home. These windows include at least two separate panes of glass, with an insulating spacer and a sealed airspace between them. Spacers may be filled with a desiccant, a special moisture absorbing material, or a warm-edge glass spacer. The edges of the unit are sealed with a high-grade sealant to keep condensation from occurring between the windowpanes. The airspace between the two panes in many double pane windows is filled with argon or krypton gas to provide additional insulation.
Double pane windows still leak climate-controlled air if a seal is broken. At Glass Doctor of Shreveport, we specialize in the installation, replacement and repair of double pane windows. Warning signs that suggest you may need window repairs include condensation under the windowpanes, and a milky appearance on your windows.
Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Double pane windows keep out the heat, cold and noise, which makes your home more comfortable and energy efficient. They reduce cold transmittance through the windows in winter and reduce heat gain from outside in summer, making it easier to control the climate in your home year-round. This comes with a number of benefits. In particular, you should be able to use your home's heating and air conditioning system less, which will reduce energy consumption and significantly lower your utility bills.
