IGU Window Repair

Insulated Glass Units:

If you replace your old windows with insulated glass, you can keep the cool air inside during summer and the hot air inside during winter. This can save you money on your electric bill!

In previous times, insulating your house typically meant going into the attic. Now, with our insulated glass, you can keep your whole house energy-efficient! This can increase the resale value of your house as well. 

Insulated Glass Units are made by sealing a layer of air in between two pieces of glass. If your house already has these windows but there is condensation or a foggy appearance, Versa Glass can replace them with new energy-efficient windows.

Insulated Glass Advantages

Insulated glass will keep your house at a more consistent temperature. This means that it will keep the cool air and hot air inside while keeping the outside temperate out. This means that even on the hottest day you can have a cool house without running the air conditioner constantly. This ultimately saves on your heating and cooling bill.

Insulated glass windows are typically much more expensive than regular windows. That being said, the savings are even greater. In a few years you will earn the money back and more through your lower electric bills. Most of the windows even qualify for a federal income tax credit.

In addition to insulation, insulated glass offers a couple more benefits. They can reduce condensation on the inside windows of the house. They also act to insulate sound. This keeps noise on the outside at a minimal level.

How IG (Insulated Glass) Units are manufactured

An IG unit have: two insulating pieces of glass, a spacer, and a layer of air. The two pieces of insulated glass are placed together with a spacer around them which is filled with a material to absorb moisture. This leaves a layer of air between the two pieces of glass.

The perimeter of the glass unit is sealed with a high quality sealant. This prevents any water from entering. There can be either a single seal or a dual seal. This means that there is only a seal on one side of the spacer or both.  The air space in the middle can be filled with krypton or argon gas to increase insulation. If there is condensation, we can repair the window so you do not have to purchase an entirely new window and frame.

Single-sealed sealant materials include: hot melt butyl, polysulfide, silicone, or urethane.

Dual-sealed units can use PIB tape for the primary seal and hot melt butyl (one part silicone, or two-part polysulfide) for the secondary seal.
The pieces of glass do not have to be the same type. If you want a decorative glass, it will be placed on the outside. If you want tinted or reflective glass, that will also be on the outside.

Energy Efficiency

When choosing and IG unit that is right for you, look for a U-value or R-value. These are ratings that are required for them to have the energy start label. If there is no label, you will have to ask the manufacturer for the value.

The U-value is a measure of the heat lost or gained from the inside or outside of the window. A lower U-value is best.

The R-value measures the overall resistance to heat transfer. The higher the R-value the less heat is transferred.
