New double-pane windows offer a number of incentives for
homeowners in Albany, one being improved
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
exploring online or with an associate at a showroom, energy efficiency is a
crucial factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great option if you’re wanting better 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 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 replaced with moisture.
There are a couple 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 may make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important aspects of your windows, and if
that is compromised it can impact
your heating and cooling costs. Come by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to make sure that the condensation or fog you’re seeing 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 make a warranty claim.
