New double-pane windows give
you a variety of incentives for
homeowners in Eau Claire, one being better
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
looking 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 product if you’re searching for improved efficiency.
A lot of new double-pane
windows contain argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is more dense than air, which provides additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you note that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you’ve
likely developed a larger
leak and the gas has been switched with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to discover
if this is the case:
Depending on the age of your windows and the conditions causing
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 altered it can affect
your heating and cooling expenses. Stop by

can make a warranty claim.
