New double-pane windows offer a variety of perks for
homeowners in Denver, one being better
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
exploring online or with a
specialist at a showroom, energy efficiency is a critical factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great product if you’re looking
for improved efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows are filled with argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is
denser than air, which leaves you with additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you see that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you’ve
likely developed a bigger
leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to check to see
if this is what’s happened:
Depending on how long your windows have been around and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it might make sense to start
searching for replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important qualities of your windows, and if
that is inhibited it can affect
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 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 contact the manufacturer to decide if you can claim it
under your warranty.
