Double Pane Windows
In return for nice mild winters, residents in Warner Robins have to endure humid subtropical conditions during the summer. During this time, do the windows in your home help you save energy and reduce noise? Glass Doctor® of Warner Robins has a selection of insulated glass units (IGUs) that prevent temperature exchanges and reduce noise levels. Our window repair services will enhance the comfort levels in your home throughout the year.
Double Pane Windows
A double pane window, as the name implies, is a window with two panes of insulated glass. An insulated spacer in the form of a warm-edge foam core separates the glass, prevents air leaks and increases the window’s insulating value.
At Glass Doctor of Warner Robins, our glass specialists always use a high-grade sealant to prevent air leaks. You can tell if the seal has a leak if you see fog or condensation forming between the two panes.
Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Reduce Noise Pollution
From neighborhood kids playing on the street to cars zooming by, noise pollution interrupts a tranquil home. Double pane windows block out noise better than their single pane counterparts, allowing you to concentrate during the day and sleep better at night. For further noise reductions, Glass Doctor of Warner Robins also offers triple pane windows.
Lower Energy Bills
Older single pane windows allow warm air to enter your cool home while allowing cold air to escape. If you do not have IGUs for windows, the sun’s rays also heat your home. All factors contribute to wear and tear on your HVAC unit and higher power bills.
Double pane windows prevent air from leaking in or out of your home. They also allow the sun to shine through your window without the accompanying heat. Depending on the energy savings that you experience, you may find that Glass Doctor of Warner Robins’ IGUs pay for themselves with time.
When the sun shines into your home, it slowly fades or yellows furniture, the flooring, artwork and other home furnishings. Since IGUs block UV rays, your property is less susceptible to fading.
Double Pane Window Repair
The top reasons to repair double pane windows include broken glass and broken window seals. Seals break due to damage, old age, low-quality sealant products, poor installation and exposure to extreme conditions.
