New double-pane windows provide a number of incentives for
homeowners in Muncie, one being increased
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
looking online or with a
specialist 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 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 may have developed a larger
leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to determine
if this is what’s occurred:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions impacting
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 affect
your heating and cooling costs. Stop by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to be sure that the condensation or fog you’re finding 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 decide if you can claim it
under your warranty.
