New double-pane windows give
you a host of incentives for
homeowners in Springfield, one being increased
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
looking online or with an expert at a showroom, energy efficiency is a
crucial factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great choice if you’re wanting improved efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is more dense than air, which provides additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you note that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you may have developed a bigger
leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to determine
if this is what’s happened:
Depending on how long your windows have been around and the conditions impacting
the leak, it might make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important qualities of your windows, and if
that is compromised it can change
your heating and cooling costs. Stop by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to ensure that the condensation or fog you’re seeing is in between the glass, not on the glass.
- If you determine the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can reach out to the manufacturer to find out if you
can make a warranty claim.
