New double-pane windows offer a host of benefits for
homeowners in Rochester, one being increased
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
exploring online or with an expert at a showroom, energy efficiency is a critical factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great choice if you’re searching for better efficiency.
A lot of new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is more dense than air, which leaves you with 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 larger
leak and the gas has been substituted 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 causing
the leak, it may make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important features of your windows, and if
that is compromised it can change
your heating and cooling costs. Drop by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to ensure that the condensation or fog you’re finding 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.
