Double Glazing: What It is and Why It’s Important to Windows

In a place like Atlanta where the weather can go to extremes, it is essential for a home to be energy-efficient. There are a lot of ways to do this, and getting double-glazed windows to replace your old ones is one of them. To know more about this type of windows, we asked the experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta:

Q: What is double glazing?

A: It is the glazing method where the window is created with two panes of glass positioned on the frame with a space in between them, usually between 0.63 and 0.75 inches (16 and 19 mm) wide. Air is trapped between the panes to form a layer of insulation. To guarantee that no moisture is present inside the final unit, a drying agent is applied before it is sealed. The presence of condensation between the panes indicates that there is a leak. Therefore, a replacement is necessary.

Q: Why is it essential?

A: It can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency. It effectively stops heat gain or loss, which is the primary cause of high utility bills. Furthermore, it reduces carbon dioxide emissions and diminishes noise pollution.

Q: Who should we hire to install them?
