Dual Pane Windows Basics

DPWs account for roughly 90% of all windows sold today. Essentially, every major brand sold today uses a double or triple pane glass. The reason for this is that DPWs are much more energy efficient over older single pane windows. Incredibly more efficient.

There are two additional options (the missing 10%) that don't use double pane glass. The first is a window insert, sometimes called storm windows, which are single pane frames that work with your existing windows. The second option is triple pane windows - which as the name indicates used three glass panes instead of two.

DPWs are part of a window's insulated glazing unit or IGU. An IGU consists of a the glass, spacer, argon or krypton fills, and seals that help keep the unit airtight. All of these parts work together to create a much more energy efficient window that blocks heat and/or cold from passing through the window. The IGU plays a huge role in the energy efficiency of modern windows sold in the past two decades. In addition, quality insulated glass unit stop more sound from entering the home and better block heat from entering in the summer and cold from entering in the winter.

The most important component of DPWs structure is the low E glass that reflects certain UV rays from entering the home. Similarly, the low E glass on the inside of the window traps the heat during the cold winter months and helps create a more comfortable and energy efficient environment.

Double Pane Window Cost Calculator Question

I finally have narrowed it down to 3 different windows and I would love your opinion on what you feel is the best option. However, I used your estimator and that had the price lower. I was hoping you could explain.

Gilkey Price Quote
System Boreal Vinyl Custom Insert (23 Chamber, fiberglass reinforced)
Double pane LoE366, Better View full screen, custom insert.
Instead of replacing our Bay Window we would do 2 double hung and a picture window and wrap the Bay exterior. $3811.00 for a total of $12380.00. So, a total of 9 double hung and 1 large picture window.

Windows Plus Cost Bid
Soft-Lite Elements, ultra-glass package, triple pane and what they termed as a Hybrid tear out because we are going to be keeping our inside trim. We are doing the same with the Bay. 9 double hung and large picture window. they didn't mention about wrapping the Bay exterior. I will clarify with them. With the Betterview full flex screen $9588.00, with the aluminum frame full screen $9474.00

Window Universe Prices:
9 Gentex Signature Elite, 1 large picture. 2 of the double hung and the picture for the Bay so 9 total double hung double paned. Energy Star Glass Pkg, double strength glass upgrade. Dura fit full screen. $8388.00. We could upgrade to triple pane for an extra $99.00 per window. Not sure if it would cost more to updrade pictire window to triple pane, I think I've covered everything.

Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge.

Gina, our price estimator gives target prices, but there are all kinds of things that can tweak those numbers up or down. For instance, a very large window could be as much as 2x that of a very small one - but it's just too difficult to make calculators that will take all of this into effect.

For me this is a no brainer -- the Soft-Lite Elements option would be my call. Possibly the best vinyl windows on the market at a very decent price base on the pricing I've seen lately.

DP Price Quotes

Thank you John. The quote I received were as follows

1 bathroom vinyl with 2 obscured sashes and 2 tempered

3 regular vinyls. 1 casement replacement over the kitchen sink into a double hung DP vinyl.

And replacing my French doors to sliding doors because french doors were too expensive compared to sliding. The sliding doors have 3 point locking system screens and deadbolt lock and key entry.

The window's were quoted for $7900 and doors were $5400.

Thank you so much for your help.
