New double-pane windows give
you a host of benefits for
homeowners in Winston-Salem, one being improved
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
researching 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 wanting 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 note that your

likely developed a greater
leak and the gas has been switched with moisture.
There are a few things that you can do to check to see

Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions surrounding
the leak, it could make sense to start researching replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important qualities of your windows, and if
that is compromised it can impact
your heating and cooling costs. Stop by

can make a warranty claim.
