Sealed Unit or Thermopane Replacement

Many modern windows are designed in such a way that the glass or the sealed unit (Insulated Glass Unit, or IGU) can be replaced without having to replace the entire window. This process is both cost-effective and environmentally friendly.

Benefits and Cost Savings:

  1. Less Expensive: Replacing only the glass or the sealed unit is often significantly less costly than replacing the entire window. This is especially true if the window frame and sash are still in good condition.
  2. Energy Efficiency: If your window seal has failed, replacing the IGU can restore the window’s insulative properties. This can save you money on heating and cooling costs in the long run.
  3. Maintain Aesthetics: If you’re fond of your existing window frames or if they have a unique design that matches your home’s character, you can maintain that look while updating the glass.
  4. Less Labor Intensive: Replacing the entire window often requires more labour, especially if adjustments to the opening or surrounding wall are needed. Replacing just the glass or sealed unit is a simpler, faster process.

Environmental Benefits:

  1. Reduces Waste: By only replacing the glass or sealed unit, the window frame and other components don’t end up in a landfill. This substantially reduces the amount of waste generated.
  2. Conserve Resources: Producing new window frames, especially wooden or metal ones, requires resources and energy. By keeping the existing frame, you’re reducing the demand for these resources.
  3. Reduces Carbon Footprint: Manufacturing new windows and transporting them produces carbon emissions. While emissions are associated with producing and transporting new glass or sealed units, they’re generally less than those associated with whole windows.
