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 give you a variety of benefits for homeowners in Owensboro, one being better energy efficiency. Whether you’re looking online or with an associate at a showroom, energy efficiency is a critical factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows. Double-pane windows are a great choice if you’re searching for better efficiency.

A lot of new double-pane windows contain argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is more dense 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’ve likely developed a bigger leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture. There are two things that you can do to discover if this is what’s happened:

  1. Clean the exterior and interior portion of your glass to make sure that the condensation or fog you’re looking at is in between the glass, not on the glass.
  2. If you find out that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can contact the manufacturer to determine if you can make a warranty claim. 
Depending on the age of your windows and the conditions impacting the leak, it may make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of the most important features of your windows, and if that is compromised it can affect your heating and cooling bills.
