New double-pane windows provide a number of benefits for
homeowners in Long Island, one being better
energy efficiency. Whether 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 option if you’re wanting increased efficiency.
A lot of new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is
denser 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 greater
leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture.
There are a couple things that you can do to check to see
if this is what’s happened:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions impacting
the leak, it might make sense to start
searching for replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important qualities of your windows, and if
that is altered it can change
your heating and cooling expenses. Come by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to ensure that the condensation or fog you’re seeing is in between the glass, not on the glass.
- If you determine the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can contact the manufacturer to determine if you can claim it
under your warranty.
