Do you have single pane windows in your home? You know, the windows that are just the frames and then one pane of glass? If so, you’re not alone. There are a lot of older homes that have single pane windows. That used to be the standard. However, standards have changed, and technological advances have gone a long way. When you are in the market for replacement windows in Las Vegas, NV, the standards now are for all windows to be at least double pane glass. You can even upgrade to triple pane, if you want. But here are some of the things you can expect going from single to double pane glass.
Energy Efficiency Comfort
Energy efficiency makes your home and your lifestyle more comfortable in a number of ways. When you have double pane glass, the air is no longer flowing freely through the glass. You have no more air drafts and no more air leaks. You will have efficiency, which will make your home much cozier any season of the year. Plus, your lifestyle is more comfortable because your energy bills are lower. You are no longer wasting energy, so the bills go down. You can use that savings for other things you would prefer to spend it on other than pesky too-high bills.
It’s nice to know that when you take on this home improvement project, it’s a true investment. Sure, you have to put money into the new windows, but you will get money out of it as well. You get money back right away on energy bills and, in the future, you get the rest of what you spent back when you sell the home. The double pane windows will go a long way in raising the value of your home. You can put a higher price on the home when you sell it in the future, and you will more likely get that price (and faster) at that time. Single pane windows certainly aren’t worth that and they are a detriment to your house instead.
If you’ve noticed just how much you hear inside your home that’s going on outside, it can get annoying really fast when you are trying to read, relax, or watch a movie. When you get double pane glass, it will cut back on the amount of noise that comes into the house, which is always a nice thing for relaxation and peace.
If you are getting replacement windows in Las Vegas, NV any time soon, even the most basic, standard windows are going to come with double pane glass. If you want to upgrade even further, you could go as far as triple pane glass, which brings all of the benefits (and then some) of double pane glass.
