New double-pane windows give
you a variety of incentives for
homeowners in North Carolina, one being improved
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
researching online or with a
specialist at a showroom, energy efficiency is a critical factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great product if you’re looking
for better efficiency.
A lot of new double-pane
windows contain argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is
denser than air, which provides 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 two things that you can do to check to see
if this is what’s occurred:
Depending on the age of your windows and the conditions impacting
the leak, it may 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 costs. Stop by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to ensure 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 get ahold
of the manufacturer to determine if you
can make a warranty claim.
