New double-pane windows provide a variety of perks for
homeowners in Indianapolis, one being improved
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
looking online or with a
specialist 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 looking
for increased efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows are filled with argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is
denser than air, which offers additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you notice that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you’ve
likely developed a bigger
leak and the gas has been switched with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to check to see
if this is what’s occurred:
Depending on the age of your windows and the conditions surrounding
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 altered it can impact
your heating and cooling expenses. Come by

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