When clients ask about what a thermal pane window is, we answer them with two descriptions: high-performance glasses and efficiency. After all, this is what a thermal pane window is about.
A thermal pane window is composed of a number of high-performance glasses. There are windows with double or triple panes of glasses. The mentioned glass panes are separated by insulating gasses, and the gases used are argon, krypton, or xenon. Argon is more typically used because it is more affordable and is good at its job.
Unlike a regular single pane window, a thermal pane window proves to be more efficient. It has the capability to:
Decrease the transfer of heat of the environment from inside and outside the house
In the summer, the windows prevent the summer heat from entering the house. This prevents the residents or the employees from suffering from too much heat. At the same time, the windows stop the warm temperature from going out of the house during winters.
Reduce the consumption of electrical appliances and the use of cooling systems
When the temperature of the interior is comfortable for the people residing inside the house, there is no need for various electrical appliances to be used. You do not have to turn the air ventilations on during hot days. There is also no need to use heaters during the cold season.
Aside from these advantages, there are bound to be setbacks if you opt for a thermal pane window. Because we want you to get your money’s worth and we want to be transparent with you, here is one of the many disadvantages of setting up a thermal pane window:
Space between the panes allows moisture to enter
We did mention that there is a space between the panes of glass. And this space contains gas. Through time, moisture will be able to go in between of this space. So imagine your glass and this glass had moisture on it. It becomes blurry, right? And you remedy this by wiping it off. But this time, you cannot wipe it because you would have to rip it open to do so.
What happens if you do not fix your thermal pane windows? Not cleaning your windows will only lead to more problems in the future. Remember that these glasses will prevent you from spending too much of your electricity. And that is just one of the dilemmas. Another is that your glass will be blurry, not a sight to behold.
How would you clean it then? Or better yet, how do you prevent your windows from having that problem in the first place? There are tons of solutions. Some of these are:
Choosing the right service providers
You need to choose the right manufacturer or providers of installation services. Why? Because some of these installers will help you prevent inviting some moisture in. Before installing your window panes, these manufacturers drill a small hole. These small holes are then applied with moisture control membranes which prevent moisture from coming in.
Replacing the window
Sometimes, drilling holes on your window is not the ultimate solution. After all, it does not work a hundred percent of the time. In this case, the only thing we can do is to replace the window.
Changing the glass planes alone
If the thought of replacing your whole window is a nightmare of its own, we have good news for you. The only thing you need to do is to change the glass plane alone.
