New double-pane windows provide a variety of incentives for
homeowners in Lewes, one being increased
energy efficiency. Whether you’re
looking 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 option if you’re wanting better efficiency.
Many new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is more dense than air, which leaves you with 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 switched with moisture.

Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions causing
the leak, it might make sense to take a look at replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important features of your windows, and if
that is altered it can affect
your heating and cooling expenses. Stop by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to ensure that the condensation or fog you’re seeing is in between the glass, not on the glass.
- If you realize that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can get ahold
of the manufacturer to find out if you
can make a warranty claim.
