It doesn’t matter how large or small your home is, it should be comfortable. And if you have single glazed windows, it probably isn’t! When you first moved into the home, the windows were something you knew you’d want to change eventually. The more time that passes, the more annoying they are to you. It makes sense to want to improve your Rocklin, CA home! And double-glazed windows are definitely for you!
Double glazed windows are just what they sound like—windows with two panes of glass. They’re also often called double pane windows. They provide an extra layer of glass to insulate your home from the California elements outside. That helps quite a bit, but there are also extra things between the glass, such as air, to insulate the home even further. Air does a decent job, but inert gas like krypton or argon can give you even more insulation.
When you turn your heat on during the chilly portions of the year, you want that heat to stay inside. When the heat is beating down on your house from outside in the summer, you want it to stay outside. Double glaze windows can do both. These windows significantly slow the heat that comes either from outside or inside and keeps it where it is. It’s hard for air to circulate through the insulation between the panes of glass.
Windows cost a lot when you replace them, but they can save a lot too if you get double gazed windows. Rooms will stay cooler for longer periods of time, even during the hottest days, without your AC running all the time. You don’t have to adjust the thermostat at all times to keep cool. That lack of adjustment causes bills to lower as energy use decreases.
Everyone wants a peaceful home and you can’t have that when you can hear your neighbors all the time. Double glaze windows cut back on the amount of sound you’ll hear inside your home. You can rest and relax like never before and maybe even get an uninterrupted daytime nap from time to time!
Sure, you’re going to have to clean the glass on any window, but you don’t’ have to paint double glaze windows when you get vinyl materials on the frames. That’s attractive, easy to maintain, and cheaper when it comes to maintenance materials!
