New double-pane windows give
you a host of benefits for
homeowners in Cape Cod, one being better
energy efficiency. No matter if you’re
researching online or with a
specialist at a showroom, energy efficiency is a critical factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great option if you’re looking
for increased efficiency.
Many new double-pane
windows are filled with argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is
denser than air, which leaves you with additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you notice 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 discover
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 compromised it can impact
your heating and cooling costs. 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 get ahold
of the manufacturer to determine if it falls underneath your warranty.
