dual pane windows or not ?

im going to be ordering a new classA and there's a $600 upgrade for dual pane window's , is it worth it ?

I live in south Florida , will the dual pane window's help keep the heat out and the cool air in better then single pane ?

thank you

Yes. They work very good to keep heat out here in south Texas.

I've had both and prefer the double pane . Not the same quality as your double pane in the sticks and bricks , but worthwhile

Yes, just make sure they are tinted! And do not put any tint film on the inside of dual pane glass. I will cause heat build up and break the glass!

Yes they are worthwhile. I just had a vandal break one of the panes on my drivers side window. Unfortunately, I did not find out until the day before we were leaving on a trip. You can definitely feel the difference in heat transmitted compared to the double pane right next to it. Additionally it allows so much more noise in compared to the way it was when it was a dual pane. Needless to say I cannot wait until I get back so that I can have it repaired.

We'd have the double pane windows just for the noise reduction.

We've had both. Double pane is the only way to go.
