Double Pane Windows
No matter how well you maintain your home, age and extreme temperatures cause your windows to deteriorate. Seals deteriorate and windows lose their ability to effectively insulate. Aging windows allow outdoor temperatures to enter and controlled air to escape. They force your heating and air conditioning systems to work harder and your energy costs rise. Fortunately, the glass professionals at Glass Doctor® of Wilmington, NC, have a solution. We recommend installing double pane windows, a type of insulated glass unit (IGU), that is a proven solution for homes that need greater efficiency.
You may already have double pane windows in your home, but if they are aging and weatherworn, our specialists may restore them to full function with various repair techniques. A close examination will reveal signs of wear and tear. Seals break down. Some windows take on a milky appearance. Condensation builds up between panes you probably notice that they don't insulate as well as they once did. Count on our team to survey your and establish a plan of action to recover lost window insulation.
Insulated Glass Units Perform
As weather changes and temperatures swing, IGUs are your home’s best defense against costly heat exchanges. Double pane windows set up an insulating barrier that keeps extreme temperatures outside where they belong. They prevent climate-controlled air from escaping, which reduces your heating and cooling costs.
Double pane windows are built to perform. Each unit is constructed with two pieces of glass and a spacer that enhances its insulation ability. Some spacers are constructed with desiccants that absorb moisture. Others rely on warm-edged technology for improved condensation resistance. For heightened performance and condensation prevention, manufacturers fuse IGU edges and spacers with high-grade sealant. Some also inject argon or krypton gas between the panes. These gases enhance double pane windows insulation without disrupting the view.
