New double-pane windows give
you a variety of benefits for
homeowners in Minneapolis, one being increased
energy efficiency. No matter if you’re
looking 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 contain argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that has a greater density than air, which provides additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you see that your
windows have become “foggy” or if they have developed condensation, you may have developed a larger
leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to determine

Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions impacting
the leak, it might make sense to start researching 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 bills. Stop by

under your warranty.
