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

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

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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. 
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.
