New double-pane windows give
you a host of benefits for
homeowners in Santa Fe, one being increased
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
exploring online or with an associate at a showroom, energy efficiency is a
crucial factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great choice if you’re looking
for improved efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows are full of 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, it’s likely that you have developed a larger
leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture.
There are a couple things that you can do to check to see
if this is what’s occurred:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it might 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. Drop by

glass to make sure that the condensation or fog you’re seeing is in between the glass, not on the glass.

that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can reach out to the manufacturer to decide if you can claim it
under your warranty.
