New double-pane windows provide a number of incentives for
homeowners in Shrewsbury, one being better
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
researching online or with an expert at a showroom, energy efficiency is an important factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great choice if you’re looking
for improved 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 note that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you’ve
likely developed a bigger
leak and the gas has been switched with moisture.
There are a couple things that you can do to discover
if this is what’s occurred:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it could make sense to start
searching for replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important features of your windows, and if
that is compromised it can affect
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 realize that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can contact the manufacturer to decide if you can claim it
under your warranty.
