New double-pane windows give
you a variety of benefits for
homeowners in Fargo, one being increased
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
exploring 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 choice if you’re wanting increased efficiency.
Many new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that has a greater density than air, which provides additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you see that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you’ve
likely developed a larger
leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture.

Depending on how long your windows have been around and the conditions causing
the leak, it could make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important qualities of your windows, and if
that is compromised it can impact
your heating and cooling bills. Come by

glass to make sure that the condensation or fog you’re looking
at is in between the glass, not on the glass.

under your warranty.
