We offer insulated glass windows and doors to help you keep your building more comfortable.
Here at First Class Glass and Overhead Doors, we have been working with glass for over ten years, which means we’ve had plenty of time to become familiar with its strengths and weaknesses. While glass is prized for some of its qualities, such as its transparency and waterproofness, it does have some drawbacks, chief of which is its vulnerability to heat transfer. Glass is not a great insulator, and glass windows are one of the leading sites of passive heat loss/gain in any building. Fortunately, manufactures have developed insulated glass options to help you prevent this heat transfer and keep your building more comfortable.
In most cases, when people talk about insulated glass, they are usually referring to glass windows or doors with two or more glass panes separated by a gap filled with an inert gas. The space and gas in between the two glass panels significantly slows down heat transfer, preventing heat energy from making it to the other side of the window. This effect keeps your building significantly warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, preventing heat energy from escaping or entering your building. If you are interested in upgrading your windows or doors to insulated glass models, simply reach out to us to find out how to get started.
