ENERGY STAR Double Pane Windows Palm Coast FL

Double pane windows Palm Coast FL

ENERGY STAR certified double pane windows reduce energy costs while preventing heat from escaping and cold air from entering. They also prevent UV rays from damaging drapes, furniture and other belongings.

Over time, windows experience a daily cycle of expansion and contraction, known as thermal pumping. These fluctuations in pressure stress the window seal and eventually cause it to fail.

Increased Aesthetics

Double pane windows have two slabs of glass with an insulating space in between. Some windows use argon or other types of gas in this space to reduce energy loss.

The sun’s heat causes the gas in double-pane windows to expand and pressurize the space between the panes. At night, the window cools and the pressure between the panes contracts. This daily cycle stresses the seals and can cause them to crack. When the seals break, moisture can enter between the panes, forming an unsightly haze or “fogging.”

Professional window installation companies in Palm Coast can replace double pane windows to eliminate fogging and haze. The process also helps to cut down on energy costs and improves the aesthetics of your home. Some installers can provide custom designs to suit your preferences. Other options include tinting the windows for privacy or choosing frosted glass. These options require additional steps and materials, which increase the cost of the project. However, they can add a lot of value to your property.

Increased Home Value

In addition to the aesthetic improvements, double pane windows are energy efficient. They prevent heat from escaping your home in the winter and hot air from entering your home in the summer, which saves on your electricity bills. They also protect against UV rays that can damage your furniture and quartz countertops.

The insulating space between the two window panes is filled with an inert gas like argon, which minimizes convection currents and improves thermal efficiency. Most manufacturers also add a Low E coating that significantly reduces harmful sunlight rays.

This increases the resale value of your home and lowers your utility bills. Energy-efficient windows are particularly attractive to green-motivated buyers, who are willing to pay more for a home that is less of a drain on the environment.

Increased Energy Efficiency

Double pane windows help to reduce energy costs by reducing the amount of heat that is lost through your windows. This can save you a lot of money on your utility bills every month and can also decrease your carbon footprint.

This is particularly true for windows that have a Low-E coating, which will reflect radiant infrared light (heat) while allowing natural visible light to pass through. This will help to reduce your energy costs and protect you from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation on your furnishings.

Over time, double-paned windows experience a daily cycle of expansion and contraction that is known as thermal pumping. This cycle stresses the seal between the glass panes and eventually causes it to crack. Once the seal has cracked, moisture will begin to enter the space between the window panes and form an unsightly haze on your window surface. We can perform a foggy window repair that will remove the condensation and prevent further damage to your windows.

Improved Comfort

In addition to reducing energy costs, double pane windows offer improved comfort. This is because they provide an effective barrier against harsh weather conditions, like high winds and heavy rains. They can also protect your home from flying debris, which is a common cause of damage during hurricanes and severe storms.

Unlike single-pane windows, double pane windows are hermetically sealed to prevent air and moisture from entering the space between the glass. This space is usually filled with an inert gas, such as argon or krypton, to reduce energy loss and increase insulation.

The daily cycle of expansion and contraction of the gas in the space between the window panes is known as thermal pumping. Over time, this constant pressure fluctuation can weaken the seal and allow increased amounts of moisture into the window. Eventually, this moisture will cause the silica gel desiccant to become saturated and the window will appear foggy or show condensation.
