New double-pane windows provide a number of perks for
homeowners in Annapolis, one being better
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
exploring online or with an expert 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 wanting increased efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows are filled with argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is more dense than air, which provides additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you notice that your

leak and the gas has been switched with moisture.

Depending on the age of your windows and the conditions causing
the leak, it may make sense to start researching replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important features of your windows, and if
that is inhibited it can affect
your heating and cooling expenses. Drop by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to ensure that the condensation or fog you’re looking

that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can reach out to the manufacturer to find out if it falls underneath your warranty.
