Double Pane Windows
The average home experiences a wide range of weather extremes that will put the windows to the test. Improperly sealed windows mean fluctuating outdoor temperatures can also make it difficult to maintain a comfortable indoor climate. In fact, windows are the main source of temperature exchange on any buildings. Glass Doctor® of The Woodlands specializes in insulated glass units (IGUs) that will eliminate drafts and regulate your home environment. A double pane window with insulated glass provides the perfect way to reduce energy bills and fight temperature changes.
Ensure Top Performance
If your home already has double pane windows and you are still experiencing problems, a broken seal may be the culprit. Windows that have a milky appearance or condensation under the panes will need to have their seals replaced in order to operate at an optimal level.
Insulated Glass Benefits
Every insulated glass unit is constructed using at least two pieces of glass separated with an insulating spacer. The space between the panes is typically filled with a special material made to absorb moisture, which is often referred to as a desiccant. To further prevent the build up of condensation, the entire unit is sealed with premium grade materials. To make your IGU even more energy efficient, consider adding argon or krypton glass into the spacers for an added layer of insulation.
Choose Comfort with Double Pane Windows
During the winter, the IGUs will keep the heat from escaping your home and cold drafts from entering. Once summer hits and the temperature rises, the IGUs will work to keep you home cool and comfortable. With less heat transmittance, your heating and air conditioning systems won't have to work as hard. This means less wear and tear on parts and lower energy bills year round. Investing in double pane windows now means saving money in the short and long term.
