New double-pane windows give
you a variety of perks for
homeowners in Wilmington, one being improved
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
researching online or with an expert at a showroom, energy efficiency is an important factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great choice if you’re looking
for improved efficiency.
A lot of new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is
denser than air, which provides additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you notice that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you may have developed a greater
leak and the gas has been switched with moisture.
There are a couple things that you can do to check to see
if this is what’s occurred:
Depending on how long your windows have been around and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it could 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 change
your heating and cooling costs. Come by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to ensure that the condensation or fog you’re looking
at 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.
