New double-pane windows offer a number of benefits for
homeowners in Danville, one being increased
energy efficiency. No matter if you’re
researching online or with an associate 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 wanting improved efficiency.
A lot of new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is
denser 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 greater
leak and the gas has been replaced with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to determine
if this is the case:
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 features of your windows, and if
that is compromised it can affect
your heating and cooling bills. Stop by

can make a warranty claim.
