New double-pane windows offer a variety of perks for
homeowners in Syracuse, one being better
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
looking 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 product if you’re wanting improved efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is more dense 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 may have developed a larger
leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to discover
if this is what’s occurred:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions causing
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 altered it can change
your heating and cooling expenses. Drop 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 determine the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can get ahold
of the manufacturer to decide if you
can make a warranty claim.
