Double-Pane Windows

Ease the burden on your heating and cooling systems with double pane windows that can help keep your home’s climate comfortable no matter the weather conditions. Double pane windows contain insulating argon gas between the two panes of glass, providing an additional layer of insulation between your home and the elements outside.

Glass Options

When the San Francisco summers by the bay bring warmer temperatures and abundant sunshine, consider whether your window glass is up to the task of providing adequate insulation. Advanced Low-E or SunDefense™ Low-E are both examples of low emissivity glass that help block the sun’s ultraviolet rays and can reduce the amount of heat transferred.

Frame Options

The panes of glass alone are not the only factor that affects the energy efficiency of your windows. Consider the different looks and insulating benefits of each type of window frame. Wood and fiberglass are both popular choices among San Francisco homeowners because each possess low conductivity and offer excellent insulation for your home.

Between-the-Glass Blinds

If you are going to install windows with multiple panes of glass, make the most of that space with between-the-glass blinds. Sandwiched between the panes of glass, these window treatments are protected from dust, dirt, and allergens.

San Francisco Climate Recommendations

Diverse Climate

Prepare for fluctuating temperatures with Pella® Impervia®. This strong fiberglass, for both windows and patio doors, is durable enough to withstand even the most extreme of temperature changes.

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home.

Salty Air

In coastal climates close to water, your windows are more vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. The closer your home is to the water, the more susceptible you are to the effects. Consider fiberglass to maintain window integrity.
