New double-pane windows offer a host of perks for
homeowners in Kalamazoo, one being better
energy efficiency. No matter if you’re
exploring online or with an associate 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 filled with 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 greater
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 impacting
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 compromised it can change
your heating and cooling bills. 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 decide if you
can make a warranty claim.
