The Benefits of Double-Pane Windows

The Benefits of Double-Pane Windows

May 21, 2019

If you’re looking for replacement windows for your home, you’ve probably already heard about double-pane windows. These windows are considered a lot better than their single-pane counterparts in more ways than one, but why is that the case?

Our team at Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee gives you the lowdown on double-pane windows.

What Are Double-Pane Windows?

Double-pane windows are windows that have two layers of glass panes instead of a single one. In some cases, the gap between the two glass panes is sealed and filled with gas (usually argon). Most single-pane window variants also have double-paned counterparts, so compatibility or availability is rarely, if ever, a problem.

Double-Pane Windows Are Cooler

The gap between the glass panes of a double-paned window acts as an insulating layer. This means some of the heat passing through the outer pane of a casement window will be absorbed by the air (or gas) in the gap. This helps reduce the amount of heat that gets into the house, keeping the home cool and comfy.

Energy Efficiency With Two Panes

Because a double-pane window does a better job at keeping heat from getting in your home, your HVAC system won’t have to use too much energy regulating the indoor temperature. This translates to improved energy efficiency and long-term savings because of lower energy bills.

Hear From Our Customers

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
