New double-pane windows give
you a host of incentives for
homeowners in Wellesley, one being increased
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
looking online or with an expert at a showroom, energy efficiency is a
crucial factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great option if you’re wanting better efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows contain argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that has a greater density 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’ve
likely developed a greater
leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture.
There are a few 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 might 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 impact
your heating and cooling expenses. Come by

that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can get ahold

under your warranty.
