Home windows are 80% glass, and energy efficient windows start with the glass package you select. The three main options are Double Pane, Triple Pane, and Thermal Pane glass packages.
Each glass package is made from individual glass panes separated by a space filled with inert gasses. Double pane has two individual panes spaced apart, triple has three individual panes spaced apart, and Low-E glass has an IR coating to reduce heat gain / loss.
Toggle between different options to see benefits of different glass packages as well as other useful information.
Double pane glass is used in energy efficient, or cost saving windows and is incorporated in the design to prevent the tempered inside air of your home from escaping. These windows can reduce your energy usage and make your home more comfortable.
Double pane windows are made with two panes of glass separated by spacer, which determines the distance between the glass panes. The volume between the glass panes is filled with inert gasses such as argon to increase the energy efficiency by acting as an insulator and reducing moisture by limiting condensation.
Our Concept-1 window come standard with the Climatech Plus SuperSpacer system. The SuperSpacer is the ultimate choice for energy efficiency.
Insulation and Efficiency – Double pane windows are far more efficient than single pane windows. The second layer of glass, spacer, and insulation insulates your home and reduces heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer.
Noise Reduction – The added layer of glass doubles the effect of windows, leading to a noticeable reduction in noise.
Reduced Condensation – Double paned windows reduce or eliminate condensation by separating the interna pane from the outer pane. This separation of hot and cold, increases efficiency and reduces condensation.
EnergyStar estimates that choosing a more efficient window glass package can save $101 - $583 per year which is the equivalent to 1,006 – 6,205 pounds of CO2.
Triple pane windows are energy efficient windows made with three panes of glass, two spacers, and two seals with inert gas for the ultimate energy efficiency experience.
These are double or triple panes of glass treated with a transparent coating which reflects UV rays to reduce heat gain and provide the most cutting edge glass package.
