Double Pane Windows

double pane windowHomes experience the extremes of weather, exposing homeowners to frequent temperature changes. These changes weigh on a home's windows, which are the number one source of temperature exchange on any building. Improperly sealed windows leak climate controlled air, trading it for drafts. Glass Doctor® provides insulated glass units (IGUs) to help balance and regulate your interior climate. Homes equipped with double pane windows, a type of insulated glass, still face similar issues if a seal is broken. Warning signs of broken seals include a milky appearance or condensation under the panes.

Insulated Glass Benefits

Insulated glass keeps out the heat and cold, making homes more comfortable and energy efficient. In the winter, IGUs reduce heat transmittance through windows and helps maintain a consistent temperature in your home. In the summer, IGUs reduce heat gain from outside. As a result, your home’s air conditioning and heating system should run less, saving energy and money.

Keep the frame, replace the glass.An insulated glass unit consists of at least two pieces of glass and an insulating spacer, that separates the two panes of glass and seals the space between them. Spacers may be filled with a special moisture absorbing material called a desiccant or a warm-edge glass spacer such as a super spacer.

The perimeter of the entire unit is sealed with a high-grade sealant to prevent condensation from accumulating between the panes. Some insulated glass units include argon or krypton gas added to the airspace between the two panes to provide additional insulation.

Insulated Glass Replacement

At Glass Doctor, one of our specialties is insulated window glass replacement. Fortunately, you don’t always have to replace the entire window. Our glass specialist can install insulated glass replacements in your existing frames for less money than you think.

    • Since there's no way to ballpark this, there's so many different kinds of windows, styles and brands out there.
      My only advice would be to save some money and invest in good windows. Windows are too important energy-wise to a home to skimp.
      If I were to put new windows in my house I would only consider Pella or Andersen windows.
