There are many things homeowners can do to make their home more energy-efficient and to cut down on wasted energy. Just replacing the windows in their home with new glass can save up to 70 percent on energy usage compared to replacing the whole window.
Whether the glass is cracked, the seals have worn out, the glass is getting scratched up, or there is moisture trapped between panes, Glass & Mirror Outlet will help you fix the glass and get your windows back to where they need to be! There is no name more trusted for glass repair in Minneapolis. Here are three of the most common modern window glass options:
Double Pane Windows: These units are made of two glass panes separated by a layer of dead air space. They work to decrease the amount of UV light that is transferred though the glass thus lowering heat and cold loss through the window and lowering energy usage.
Argon Gas: Some windows with double panes use argon gas to fill the layer between the panes. Argon Gas can give a boost to the window’s R-value and also works as an improved sound barrier. This reduces energy usages and waste while also reducing noise interference from outside.
Patterned Double Pane Windows: Patterned windows can be found in many areas and are most commonly chosen for bathrooms. They can also be found near entry ways and other areas where natural light is wanted but privacy is needed. The attractive patterns prevent a clear view but still allow light in.
