New double-pane windows provide a variety of incentives for
homeowners in Albuquerque, one being improved
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
exploring online or with a
specialist at a showroom, energy efficiency is an important factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great option if you’re looking
for better efficiency.
Many new double-pane
windows are full of 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 see that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you may have developed a greater
leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to check to see
if this is the case:
Depending on how long your windows have been around and the conditions impacting
the leak, it may make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important features of your windows, and if
that is compromised it can impact
your heating and cooling bills. Stop by

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