What are Double Pane Windows?

A double pane window is a window that has two panes of glass instead of one. The two panes of glass are set in individual frames and the space between them is sealed-off, creating an air pocket which better insulates your home.

That space also contains desiccant (a special drying agent), which prevents condensation from forming on the glass.

The 3 Main Benefits of Double Pane Windows

Double Pane windows insulate your home- and save you money.

You may have noticed in single-pane homes, the heavy condensation that materializes on windows during the colder months. This happens because of the contrast between the cold air outside and the warm air inside. This condensation may seem like a harmless inconvenience that only fogs up your view of the lovely outdoors, but it’s actually a sign of a much larger issue- cold air is entering your home while the heat you pay for diffuses out.

With double-pane windows, your ideal temperature maintains itself. In the summer, the panes keep the AC in- and in the winter, they keep the frost out. This makes double pane windows a simple but revolutionary way to save money on your energy bills.

(Note: Be aware that if a double pane window’s seal is broken, the air pocket and insulating properties have been compromised. Signs to spot a damaged seal include: Condensation between the glass, windows that appear foggy, or milky, increased rust build up)

Double Panes Keep the Noise Out

From cars honking, dogs barking, and boombox carrying neighbors loose on the streets – the outside world is noisy. But you don’t have to let the sounds that abound disrupt your private sanctuary.

Double pane windows add an extra layer of insulation against the world’s noise pollution. They also keep the interior noise in, so feel free to have karaoke night at your place this Friday.

Increase Your Property Value

An added sense of tranquility in your life, and money saved on energy bills, aren’t the end of what double pane windows have to offer. Double pane windows won’t just improve your life- if you’re looking to sell your home, they’ll improve the life of your home’s next occupant, making them the gift that keeps on giving. Double pane windows also add an extra degree of safety and aesthetic to your home, further upping its property value.
