New double-pane windows give
you a variety of incentives for
homeowners in Baltimore, one being improved
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 searching for improved efficiency.
Many new double-pane
windows are filled with argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is
denser than air, which offers 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 determine
if this is the case:
Depending on the age of your windows 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 altered it can impact
your heating and cooling costs. Come by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to ensure 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 determine if you can claim it
under your warranty.
