Double Pane Windows
As sun bakes your Victoria home, your windows expand and contract accordingly. This daily cycle puts a great deal of stress on the window seals. As a result, the seal eventually weakens and breaks. Outdoor moisture and air seep into your home or window unit, creating drafts and allowing climate-controlled air to escape. Glass Doctor® of Victoria, TX will provide you with insulated glass units (IGUs) to reestablish your home's efficiency and curb appeal.
What is an Insulated Glass Unit?
An IGU is made up of two or more panes of glass and insulating spacers, which are sealed together within the frame. To prevent moisture damage, the spacers may be filled with a desiccant, which absorbs moisture to keep it away from the rest of the window. For added insulation, some IGUs also include argon or krypton gas in between the panes. The most common types of IGUs are double pane windows.
Benefits of Double Pane Windows
First and foremost, IGUs prevent the hot air from passing through your window. This feature results in a more effective heating and cooling system, ultimately resulting in your home will use less energy overall. This will save you money on your energy bill and keep your Victoria home more comfortable than ever. The double pane window also reduces noise pollution.
Signs of Faulty Windows
While it's best to have a Glass Doctor of Victoria, TX specialist assess your windows for damage, there are some basic signs of seal failure homeowners can see. Broken glass is the most obvious sign your window needs to be replaced, however, you should also keep an eye out for condensation or a milky buildup in between panes. These signs are indicative of a broken window seal.
