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

New double-pane windows give you a variety of incentives for homeowners in Bloomington, IN, one being improved energy efficiency. No matter if you’re exploring 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 better efficiency.

A lot of 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 larger leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture. There are a couple things that you can do to determine if this is what’s occurred:

  1. 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.
  2. If you find out that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can get ahold of the manufacturer to find out if you can claim it under your warranty. 
Depending on how old your windows are and the conditions surrounding the leak, it could make sense to start researching 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.
