Double pane windows have two panes of glass in each sash to provide a thermal break that assists in insulating the home from exterior temperatures.

Some of the more popular styles that offer double pane glass are double and single-hung, casement, and sliding windows, and each style has numerous standard double pane window sizes to choose from, so you should be able to find a size to fit just about any opening.
Many homeowners find it easier to replace their existing windows with the same style of windows, but with the many common double pane windows sizes available, there may be no problem changing styles to give your home a new look.
