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 provide a number of incentives for homeowners in Cheyenne, one being increased energy efficiency. No matter if you’re researching 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 searching for increased efficiency.

Most 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 may have developed a bigger leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture. There are two things that you can do to determine if this is what’s happened:

  1. Clean the exterior and interior portion of your glass to ensure 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 get ahold of the manufacturer to decide if you can claim it under your warranty. 
Depending on how long your windows have been around and the conditions surrounding the leak, it could make sense to start researching 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.
