When you are working on improving your home, even things that seem small can matter. And then again, the big things really matter. IF you are considering replacement windows in Henderson, NV, you need to keep insulation in mind. Yes, windows bring in natural light and allow you to see the views outside. They also help you to ventilate, when needed. But one of the big things windows do at all times is insulate your home against the outside elements. Does it matter? Look at these comparisons and see for yourself.
Single Pane Versus Triple Pane Glass
If you have older windows, you may only have single pane glass. Your energy bills are high. You can hear everything outside. You can feel the air moving through the glass and bring in drafts. On the other hand, triple pane glass is the complete opposite. They keep energy bills low while blocking outside noises from coming in. They insulate the home and keep air from moving through the glass so you are comfortable at all times. Standard windows today come with double pane glass and that’s a huge difference over single pane as well. But triple pane insults even better and makes an even bigger difference.
Air Filled Versus Inert Gas Filled Windows
If your windows are double pane now, they probably have air between the panes of glass. While there is nothing wrong with that, it doesn’t add a ton of insulation to your home, which means that air can be transferred in and out with much more ease. New window replacement in Las Vegas give you options of further insulation. You can get inert gas fillings in your windows, between the panes of glass. Those fillings are argon or krypton gases and the are completely harmless. The gases don’t show and don’t smell like anything, either. They are simply denser than air so they stop the airflow and slow things down so you leak little to no air.
If you have ever been in a home with poor insulation, you know it. You were cold (or hot) the whole time you were there. Even if things look okay, insulation matters a great deal. You need the right insulation in your attic, walls, and, yes, in your windows, to bring your family the comfort they deserve.
