New double-pane windows offer a host of incentives for
homeowners in Grand Rapids, one being improved
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
researching 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 product if you’re searching for better efficiency.
A lot of 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 see that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you may have developed a greater
leak and the gas has been switched with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to discover
if this is the case:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions surrounding
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 impact
your heating and cooling expenses. Come by

that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can reach out to the manufacturer to find out if you
can make a warranty claim.
