Energy Efficient Windows: the Perfect Spring Upgrade

Glass Doctor® has the solution for upgrading home windows. - Spring has arrived, and with it the time to start considering cleaning and upgrading the home.

Glass Doctor has some window upgrades that can help keep your home looking refreshed this spring.  

Changing single pain windows to insulated glass units is an easy upgrade to home windows that not only adds value but also make homes more energy efficient. These specially designed double paned windows feature a sealed air space that is either vacuumed out or filled with argon or krypton gas. This sealed space creates an insulating effect, helping to keep out warm external air while keeping cool air inside.

Replacing single pane windows with IGUs can save as much as 15 percent on household energy bills, and they help year-round, as they also reduce cold transmittance during the winter months. Additionally, IGUs can help stifle outside noise and prevent condensation from forming on the interior side of windows.

Low-emissivity glass is another simple home upgrade option that can add value to the home while also providing functionality. Low-emissivity glass has a thin, metallic coating that blocks up to 98 percent of UV rays and reduces energy loss by 30 to 50 percent.

Consider these energy efficient window options for spring to make the home look refreshed and ready for summer. Be sure to consult your local Glass Doctor ( for more information on products that can update the home while reducing energy costs.
