Double Pane Windows
Modern homes are designed and constructed to withstand the extremes of wind and weather while keeping the occupants comfortable and dry. Nowhere are these factors seen more readily than in the construction of 21st century double pane windows installed by Glass Doctor® of State College.
In the past, windows were a constant source of temperature loss-either hot or cool air-due to improper installation or the construction of the window itself. These days, however, the advent of insulated glass, high tech adhesives and innovative construction have made the newest windows as insulating as the walls they are located in.
Design and Construction
Double pane windows contain an interior and exterior sheet of glass separated by an air space. By itself, this construction significantly reduces the amount of heat that conducts from one side of the window to the other. The addition of a noble gas-typically argon or krypton-to the interior of the window enhances insulation and the high-tech adhesives ensure that the gas remains there for a decade or more.
Insulated Glass Benefits
With the installation of insulated glass units (IGUs), conduction across the window is significantly slowed and heat gain from the sunlight itself is also almost eliminated. These two facts mean that the living space of your home remains both comfortable and at a consistent temperature. Thus, your HVAC system has to work less, and you save money every month on your utility bills.
Insulated Glass Replacement
The replacement or repair of an insulated glass unit is not difficult if you have the right tools, knowledge and experience. Glass Doctor of State College has all these and more.
