If you’re looking for replacement windows for your home, you’ve probably already heard about double-pane windows. These windows are considered a lot better than their single-pane counterparts in more ways than one, but why is that the case?
Our team at Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee gives you the lowdown on double-pane windows.
What Are Double-Pane Windows?
Double-pane windows are windows that have two layers of glass panes instead of a single one. In some cases, the gap between the two glass panes is sealed and filled with gas (usually argon). Most single-pane window variants also have double-paned counterparts, so compatibility or availability is rarely, if ever, a problem.
Double-Pane Windows Are Cooler
The gap between the glass panes of a double-paned window acts as an insulating layer. This means some of the heat passing through the outer pane of a casement window will be absorbed by the air (or gas) in the gap. This helps reduce the amount of heat that gets into the house, keeping the home cool and comfy.
Energy Efficiency With Two Panes
Because a double-pane window does a better job at keeping heat from getting in your home, your HVAC system won’t have to use too much energy regulating the indoor temperature. This translates to improved energy efficiency and long-term savings because of lower energy bills.
