The Insulation Benefits of Multi-Pane Windows for Your Columbus, OH, Home

The Insulation Benefits of Multi-Pane Windows for Your Columbus, OH, Home

While windows of yore featured just a single pane of glass mulled into the sash, most replacement windows made today are “multi-pane” windows. As the term implies, multi-pane windows feature more than one pane of glass—usually two, but sometimes three—that are built together to form the window’s glazing system. Multi-pane windows offer a number of insulation benefits as they create more barriers for heat to travel through. So, when it comes to insulating your Columbus, Ohio, residence, multi-pane windows are the way to go.

The Science of Heat Transfer

If you’ll remember from high school science class, heat transfer is the movement of thermal energy from one area to another. Hot air has a natural tendency to move toward cooler areas so as to create a temperature equilibrium. What this means for homeowners is that during the summer, all that hot outside air will naturally try to get into your nice cool home, and in the winter, all of your toasty warm air will try to escape. It’s not personal—it’s just science!

By reducing the amount of heat transfer, multi-pane windows can increase the comfort level of your home, keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Also, by reducing this unwanted transfer of hot air, multi-pane windows make it easier for your home to maintain a consistent interior temperature. That means your HVAC system won’t have to work so hard, which is good news for it, because it will probably last longer, and good news for you because you’ll probably see a reduction in your heating and cooling costs.

A company that honors their warranty! I had their windows since 1996 and the company still honors my warranty. Great windows. Great company. Thank you Sunrise!

Chicago, IL

I replaced 32 windows in my home with your windows, they are fantastic!! For the last 10 years have been putting in windows on remodels with a contractor friend of mine, and my Sunrise Windows are the best we've done. They lowered my energy bills both summer and winter and the style window I picked worked out perfectly with the window trim/molding that we put in. They look so nice and work flawlessly so far (6 yrs).

Ft. Collins, CO

I purchased Sunrise Windows last year for a house I was flipping. I believe the windows were a big reason the house sold for nearly 100% of the asking price. This is a great company. I would recommend this company's products to anyone.

Toledo, OH

I had Sunrise Windows installed in my home in 2000. We started noticing some of the wood lament on the windows started peeling. Sixteen years later, Sunrise honored their warranty and replaced every window. This is a stand-up company.

Temperance, MI

Installed 30 replacement windows and 2 sliding glass doors in Raleigh, NC. No leaks, no condensation, nearly perfect inside and out. Some windows were larger than 5x5 and still no problems. No more drafts and lower hvac costs. Real quality. Check with experts who engineer glass, as I did. They look great and visitors actually notice and comment. Just a happy customer. Nice job guys!

Raleigh, NC

I had all my windows and both doors replaced at the same time to my older (built in 1958) home by the folks at Sunrise and am very satisfied with the selection, service and installation! I’d recommend Sunrise to anyone renovating their older home.
