How to Tell if Your Double-Pane Windows Need to be Replaced

New double-pane windows provide a host of perks for homeowners in Jackson, one being increased energy efficiency. No matter if you’re exploring online or with an associate 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 wanting improved efficiency.

Most new double-pane windows contain argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that has a greater density 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’ve likely developed a larger leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture. There are a few things that you can do to discover if this is the case:

  1. 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.
  2. If you realize that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can contact the manufacturer to decide if you can claim it under your warranty. 
Depending on how old your windows are 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 bills.
