New double-pane windows provide a host of perks for
homeowners in Davenport, one being improved
energy efficiency. Regardless if 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 choice if you’re looking
for increased efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows contain argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that has a greater density than air, which leaves you with additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you note that your

leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture.

Depending on the age of your windows and the conditions impacting
the leak, it may make sense to start
searching for replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important aspects of your windows, and if
that is inhibited 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 looking
at is in between the glass, not on the glass.
- If you find out
that the moisture is in fact between the glass, you can contact the manufacturer to determine if you can claim it
under your warranty.
