Do you need to reduce your energy costs in a much more efficient manner? Read on to learn about the benefits of double pane windows for your home and business.
What are double pane windows
Double pane windows or dual pane windows are windows with two panes of glass separated by a gas or vacuum space. Higher-end double-pane windows have Argon or other noble gasses as a filler between the window panes. The use of two panes of glass reduces the amount of heat that is let in from the sunshine and the amount lost through insulation and heat transfer.
Benefits to having double pane windows
The biggest benefit of installing double pane windows is energy savings. Two panes of glass are more effective at preventing heat loss than one pane. Most of these products are made even more helpful with a Low-E coating that can help reduce energy loss by as much as half. The coating also helps reduce sun fading of furniture and rugs. Noise reduction is another advantage of purchasing double pane windows for a property. This can be especially helpful for people who live on busy streets, near an airport, and those whose homes are close to neighboring houses. No maintenance vinyl frames reduce the amount of work and money a person must spend maintaining their windows.
Options for double pane windows
Double pane windows come in a variety of energy saving options. The better the Low-E coating and the thicker the glass panes, the more energy a homeowner can save. This savings translates to significantly lower heating and cooling costs and increased money savings. Windows can also come tinted to help reduce the amount of sunlight that gets into the home if a person wishes. Buyers can choose between aluminum, vinyl, and steel frames depending on their individual needs.
