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:
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. Stop by

- 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.
- 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.
