How Insulated Glass Units Work

Even if your windows don’t appear to be broken, they can weaken with age, causing their seals to break, or have unsightly condensation build up between the two panels. By replacing your current glass panels with insulated glass units, you can keep the inside and outside temperatures separate.

Insulated glass units are made up of two glass panes and a spacer set in the middle. This area is then filled with a special moisture-absorbing material referred to as desiccant or warm-edge glass spacer. This material is used as a drying agent to prevent moisture from getting in and creating condensation.

Once this area fills up, insulating gas (e.g. argon or krypton gas) and a high-grade sealant are used around the perimeter of the entire unit to keep the center dry and insulate your home.
