New double-pane windows give
you a variety of perks for
homeowners in St. Paul, one being improved
energy efficiency. No matter if you’re
researching online or with an associate 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 searching for better efficiency.
Many new double-pane
windows are filled with argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is more dense 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 may have developed a larger
leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to determine
if this is what’s occurred:
Depending on the age of your windows and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it could make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important features of your windows, and if
that is altered it can change
your heating and cooling costs. Stop by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to ensure that the condensation or fog you’re finding is in between the glass, not on the glass.
- If you find out
that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can contact the manufacturer to find out if you can claim it
under your warranty.
