Insulated Glass Windows
Window replacement experts Alvin Glass have been in business for over two decades, providing the southeast Houston area with superior insulated glass installation and repair services. Insulated glass windows are one of the best investments you can make in your home.
Windows are the largest source of energy loss in a home. New or replacement insulated glass windows from Alvin Glass can save you lots of money on your energy bills and greatly improve the appearance of your home
Insulated window glass consists of two or more panes of glass separated by a piece called a spacer. The spacer creates a cavity of air between the two panes of glass. An adhesive is applied to the spacer creating an airtight, watertight seal that traps the air or gas within the cavity between the two panes.
This trapped still air reduces the conductive heat transfer between the interior of your house and the outside environment. The entire assembly – glass and spacer – is often referred to as an insulated glass unit
The insulating properties of an insulated glass unit are expressed as an R (for resistance)-value or R rating. The higher a window’s R rating the greater its resistance to heat transfers. For instance, a standard insulating glass unit consisting of two clear uncoated panes of glass with air in the cavity between them has an R-value of 2.
Insulated Glass Saves Money On Utilities
In addition to saving money on your energy bills, an insulated glass window will help keep dust and pollen out of your home as well as reduce the levels of outdoor noise coming from the outside. Over time, insulated glass units will begin to lose their seal allowing air and moisture to creep in, resulting in a cloudy or foggy appearance between the panes of glass. Alvin Glass’ insulated glass repair can replace these defective windows with new ones.
