New double-pane windows offer a number of perks for
homeowners in Falls Church, one being better
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
researching online or with an expert at a showroom, energy efficiency is a critical factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great choice 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 provides 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 greater
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 occurred:
Depending on the age of your windows and the conditions causing
the leak, it may make sense to start
searching for replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important qualities of your windows, and if
that is compromised it can change
your heating and cooling costs. Stop by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to be sure that the condensation or fog you’re looking
at is in between the glass, not on the glass.
- If you realize that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can contact the manufacturer to determine if you can claim it
under your warranty.
