New double-pane windows provide a number of incentives for
homeowners in Champaign, one being better
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
exploring 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 searching for improved efficiency.
Many new double-pane
windows are full of 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 greater
leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture.
There are two things that you can do to determine
if this is what’s occurred:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it might make sense to take a look at 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 reach out to the manufacturer to decide if you can claim it
under your warranty.
