Can you explain what single and double pane windows are?
Before you figure out what the differences of use and efficiency there are between these two types of windows, it’s important to just understand what these options actually are. Single pane windows are made with a single layer of glass. They come in multiple different types of materials and styles, with some adding in a removable pane of glass that is often called a “storm window”. Meanwhile, double pane windows come with two panes of glass, with many manufacturers including argon gas in-between the panes. The simple difference here is the layers of glass that come with these windows, and the addition of other types of insulation that are included between those layers of glass.
How are double-pane windows more beneficial?
Now that you understand what is inherently different about single and double pane windows, it’s time to see how the addition of another pane makes these windows more beneficial to your needs. The first thing to note is that you will save more money and energy when you replace your old windows with double-pane windows. They provide your home with more insulation, which works to keep hot air out in the summer, and cooler air out in the winter. Because of this, they are also better for the environment, and depending on where you live, can give you tax incentives! Beyond the tax incentives, you will notice a real reduction in noise, which can be very good for people who live in neighborhoods and are looking to listen to their neighbors less. They also offer less window condensation, eliminate the need for storm windows, increase home value, and improve overall security.
