New double-pane windows provide a variety of benefits for
homeowners in Scottsdale, one being better
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
researching online or with an associate at a showroom, energy efficiency is an important factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great option if you’re looking
for better efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that has a greater density than air, which offers additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you notice that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, it’s likely that you have developed a larger
leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture.
There are two things that you can do to discover
if this is what’s happened:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it could make sense to start
searching for replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important features of your windows, and if
that is inhibited it can change
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 finding 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 determine if you can claim it
under your warranty.
