New double-pane windows offer a variety of benefits for
homeowners in Terre Haute, one being improved
energy efficiency. Regardless if 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 option if you’re wanting increased efficiency.
A lot of new double-pane
windows are filled with argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is
denser than air, which offers 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 switched with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to check to see
if this is what’s happened:
Depending on the age of your windows and the conditions causing
the leak, it might make sense to start
searching for replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important features of your windows, and if
that is inhibited it can change
your heating and cooling costs. Stop 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 find out
that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can contact the manufacturer to decide if it falls underneath your warranty.
