How to Tell if Your Double-Pane Windows Need to be Replaced

New double-pane windows offer a number of perks for homeowners in Tucson, one being better energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re looking 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 option if you’re searching for improved 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 note that your windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you’ve likely developed a bigger leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture. There are a few things that you can do to discover if this is the case:

  1. Clean the exterior and interior portion of your glass to be sure that the condensation or fog you’re looking at is in between the glass, not on the glass.
  2. If you realize 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. 
Depending on how old your windows are and the conditions impacting the leak, it might make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of the most important qualities of your windows, and if that is compromised it can impact your heating and cooling costs.
