Lower Heating & Cooling Costs with Thermopane glass installed by BGS
BGS Glass Services install quality-crafted thermopane windows for your Wisconsin home. The term "thermopane" refers to double- or triple-paned windows, which are also known as insulated glass units (IGUs). The panes of glass are separated by spacers and sealed to protect the air pocket in between them. Often, the air pocket between the panes is filled with argon gas, which helps to reduce heat loss.
Thermopanes do an excellent job of insulating your home’s interior from the elements—whether it’s the steaming heat of August’s dog days or the frigid winds of February. An investment in double-glazed thermopane windows will pay off every time you open your monthly energy bill.
How Thermopane Windows Save You Money
Thermopane windows are the modern evolution of single-pane glass. In order to improve the insulating properties of single pane glass, homeowners used to install storm windows in the winter. Adding this second window pane created additional protection from outside elements. Thermopanes take this notion a step further by sealing insulating gases between the two panes. And, of course, the seal between the two layers of glass in a thermopane is much better than a storm window fitted over a window.
Thermopane windows use gases with low heat conductivity—the most common being Argon gas, which conducts 33% less heat than air. This reduction in heat transfer works both ways: your interior absorbs less heat from outdoors in the summer and it loses less interior heat in the winter. In turn, your heating and cooling systems don’t work as hard, and your energy costs are reduced.
Fogged Thermopane Window Repairs
Are your double-paned insulated windows fogged up? It's an easy fix for our Milwaukee window repair experts. A broken seal is usually the culprit, and besides causing fogging it can reduce your thermopane window's ability to insulate your home. Replacing the thermopane glass is all that's needed to remedy this.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Home's Old Windows?
The experts at BGS Glass will assess whether replacement is necessary for your Milwaukee home’s windows. There are many factors to determine if it is better to have your old windows repaired or if they should be totally replaced. Replacement nearly always depends on the extent of damage, but there are some things to consider:
- Age of your current windows – if your home’s windows are original and are largely in good shape, repair may be the best option. However, if broken hardware replacements are impossible to find, replacement may be necessary.
- Rotting frames – windows with rotting wood can be repaired if the troublesome areas are isolated. The more damage, the better the chances replacement is the way to go.
- Pane condition – if the pane is just cracked or if there are multiple panes to the window, the repair is the best option. If they are single-paned vinyl windows, replacement is likely the best idea.
- Seal effectiveness – drafty windows are a drain on your energy bill. While small drafts can be simply repaired, excessive drafts may require replacement.
