Benefits of Insulated Glass in Windows

There are a number of reasons people replace their windows—from energy efficiency to security to maintenance to pure aesthetics. One of the biggest reasons is energy efficiency. If you’re in the market for new windows, there’s a good chance your current ones are old and drafty and causing your energy bills to increase!

This is why it’s so important to get energy-efficient windows.

Energy-Efficient Windows: Insulated Glass

One of the components of an energy-efficient window is the glass. In fact, most windows manufactured today have insulated glass (glazing).

What Is Insulated Window Glass?

Windows with insulated glass are double-pane windows. Insulated glass refers to two panes, separated by what’s known as a spacer, which is usually filled with argon or krypton gas. This spacer seals the gas between the two panes. It can be made of different materials (aluminum, structural foam, etc.). Panes vary in thickness.

What Are the Benefits of Insulated Glass?

Insulated window glass maximizes energy efficiency and offers several benefits related to this. Double-pane windows:

  • Can help reduce your energy bills
  • Can help eliminate drafts and make your home more comfortable all year round
  • Provide better soundproofing and help reduce outside noises
  • Tend to be more durable
  • Are more secure (double-pane windows are harder to break)
  • Can help reduce moisture infiltration problems and related problems, like mold growth

If you’re replacing your old windows, there’s no reason to not buy energy-efficient windows with double glazing!
