New double-pane windows offer a variety of incentives for
homeowners in West Springfield, one being better
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
exploring online or with a
specialist at a showroom, energy efficiency is a
crucial factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great product if you’re looking
for improved efficiency.
Many new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that has a greater density than air, which leaves you with additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you see that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you may have developed a greater
leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to check to see
if this is what’s happened:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it might make sense to start
searching for replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important qualities of your windows, and if
that is inhibited it can change
your heating and cooling costs. Come by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to make sure that the condensation or fog you’re looking
at is in between the glass, not on the glass.
- If you realize that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can contact the manufacturer to decide if it falls underneath your warranty.
