Double Pane Windows
Regardless of the climate you live in, your home experiences temperature changes that can change from day to day. These temperature swings deteriorate the condition of your windows over time. This results in broken or damaged seals, which let in drafts and exchange air. Glass Doctor® of Summerville, SC will solve your window problems. We repair and install windows to regulate the interior climate of your home.
Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Homes feel more comfortable with double pane windows, which are a type of insulated glass unit (IGU), because they reduce heat exchange. Reducing the exchange of heat results in a more consistent temperature in your home. This also makes your home more energy efficient. Your HVAC system will run less in both the summer and winter, so you'll notice a difference on your energy bills all year long.
An IGU is made up of two or three pieces of glass with an insulating spacer, which separates the glass and works to seal the space between them. The spacers are typically filled with a material called desiccant, which absorbs moisture. A high-grade sealant is used around the perimeter to prevent condensation from forming between the panes. Some windows will also include krypton gas between the panes to provide even greater protection.
