If you’re considering replacement windows for your home, double-pane windows should be the top item on your must have list. This is because one pane of glass has virtually no insulative properties. Sure, it blocks the wind and rain, but that’s about it. However, when two panes are used together with a small space between as in double-pane windows, insulative properties increase significantly. Although energy-efficiency is the most cited reason to choose new windows with two panes, there are other reasons.
Not only do multi-pane windows better insulation your home against the weather, they also increase sound insulation. If you have a home on a busy street or in a loud area, you’ll notice this benefit immediately.
When you use less energy to heat or cool your home, you’re using fewer fossil fuels. Some studies show that for every single pane window you replace with a multi-pane ENERGY STAR® certified window you’ll reduce your CO2 output by up to 6,000 pounds a year!
Increase Your Home’s Comfort
If you like to sit by a window and read a book or enjoy time with your family except you dread the hot or cool air coming in, you need new windows. When you choose double-pane windows, you’ll feel less of the outside temperatures coming through.
If you have old single pane windows and storm windows, new windows with two or more panes will reduce your seasonal work. Storm windows have to be put up and take down. It’s not a fun task and storing the storm windows takes up space. With new double or triple-pane windows, you’ll never need to deal with storm windows again, and, if you end up with a nice day anytime of year, you can open your windows for fresh air!
