New double-pane windows provide a variety of perks for
homeowners in Binghamton, one being better
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
researching 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 looking
for increased efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows are filled with argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that has a greater density than air, which provides additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you note that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, it’s likely that you have developed a larger
leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to check to see
if this is the case:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it could make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important qualities of your windows, and if
that is inhibited it can impact
your heating and cooling expenses. Drop by

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