New double-pane windows provide a variety of benefits for
homeowners in Boise, one being increased
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
researching 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 product if you’re wanting increased efficiency.
Many 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, it’s likely that you have developed a bigger
leak and the gas has been switched with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to determine
if this is what’s happened:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions causing
the leak, it may make sense to start
searching for replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important aspects of your windows, and if
that is compromised it can affect
your heating and cooling expenses. Come by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to make sure that the condensation or fog you’re looking
at is in between the glass, not on the glass.
- If you determine the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can get ahold
of the manufacturer to find out if you
can make a warranty claim.
