New double-pane windows give
you a host of benefits for
homeowners in Nashville, one being increased
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
researching online or with an expert 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.
Most new double-pane
windows contain argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is
denser than air, which provides 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 couple things that you can do to determine

Depending on how long your windows have been around and the conditions impacting
the leak, it may 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 change
your heating and cooling bills. Stop by

that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can contact the manufacturer to decide if you
can make a warranty claim.
