In times past, windows were a luxury that only the very rich were able to afford. Nowadays, there is a virtually endless supply of choices when it comes to windows. That’s why making the right choice of windows for any type of structure for any homes. One of the most popular type of house window is double pane window. Double-pane windows are offered by manufacturers as a way of keeping your home more energy efficient by trapping more heat inside during the winter and more cool air inside during the summer. The idea behind double-pane windows is to arrest the process of convection as much as possible. In winter, for instance, central heating warms the inside of a home to a temperature much more comfortable than outdoor cold temperatures. But when heat escapes through the window, the central heat system has to work harder to maintain a consistent temperature inside the home, which in turn often leads to higher energy costs. Double-pane windows attempt to prevent this heat loss by trapping heat between the two panes before it can escape to the outside.
Double pane windows were invented in 1935, and they will greatly improve insulation of your house. Double pane is an old technology, and in recent years several manufacturers have tried to improve the technology. Triple-pane windows, with three-pane and two noble gas pockets, provide even more energy efficiency. The relatively new heat-mirror film can also be used to provide better efficiency to windows.
