How to Tell if Your Double-Pane Windows Need to be Replaced

New double-pane windows give you a number of benefits for homeowners in Murray, one being increased 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 searching for improved efficiency.

Most new double-pane windows are filled with argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that has a greater density than air, which leaves you with 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 bigger leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture. There are a couple things that you can do to determine if this is what’s happened:

  1. Clean the exterior and interior portion of your glass to be sure that the condensation or fog you’re finding is in between the glass, not on the glass.
  2. If you determine the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can get ahold of the manufacturer to decide if it falls underneath your warranty. 
Depending on how long your windows have been around and the conditions impacting 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 impact your heating and cooling expenses.
