Advantages of Double-Paned Windows

3/20/2014 7:41:42 AM

There are several benefits to installing double-paned windows, but the most significant—and well known—benefit is the energy savings realized by replacing single-paned windows with modern double-paned energy-efficient windows. For home or business owners looking to reduce energy costs, replacing old inefficient windows with new double-paned windows is one of the most effective ways to reduce monthly energy bills.

Double-paned windows have two sheets of glass in a window frame instead of just one. Between the glass panes is a small space to provide insulation. The small space between window panes is filled with insulating gas to further increase insulation. Often, double-paned windows are as much as 50 percent more efficient than traditional single-pane windows—and with your windows accounting for as much as half of your heating and cooling bills, double-paned windows can have a significant impact on your energy costs.

By decreasing the amount of heat transfer, double-paned windows not only decrease your energy bills, they increase the level of comfort in your home or business. You’ve undoubtedly encountered the dreaded “hot room” that exists in nearly every home and know just how uncomfortable it is no matter how much the heat or air runs. Installing double-paned windows can help you eliminate this problem.

An often overlooked and undervalued advantage of double-paned windows is their sound dampening qualities. Just as double-paned windows insulate against outdoor temperatures, they also provide noise insulation. This quality makes them invaluable for homes and businesses located near busy streets, airports, train tracks, or even if you simply have noisy neighbors.
