What are Double pane Windows?
Double pane windows are simply two pieces of glass sandwiched together to create a sash that will fit into the frame. It’s the use of new technologies that incorporate insulating gases, which are filled between the glass panes, and low–e coating that make these windows a great energy saver.
Energy efficiency in Athens
Double pane windows in Athens Illinois can be extremely energy efficient. For optimal energy savings, you want insulated glass that uses argon gas in between the 2 glass panes. Argon gas acts as a great insulator reducing heat loss in the winter. Additionally, low-e coating on the glass will block the heat projected by the sun during the summer, making your home comfortable during both seasons.
Don’t be fooled by labels! Many products will claim to use argon gas and low-e coating. The trick is to find windows where the argon gas covers almost all of the surface area of the window, backed by a company that can guarantee how long the gas will stay in there.
The products we offer are only from companies, which we know have the technology to produce a window with a long life span, and the warranty to back them.
Additionally we use products with Energystar and NFRC performance ratings that we know have been well tested and perform superior to other models in our area.
