New double-pane windows give
you a variety of benefits for
homeowners in Plattsburgh, one being improved
energy efficiency. Regardless if 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 choice if you’re looking
for increased efficiency.
Many 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 see that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, it’s likely that you have developed a bigger
leak and the gas has been switched with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to determine
if this is what’s happened:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it may make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important aspects of your windows, and if
that is inhibited it can change
your heating and cooling expenses. Drop by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to be sure that the condensation or fog you’re looking
at is in between the glass, not on the glass.

that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can get ahold
of the manufacturer to decide if it falls underneath your warranty.
