New double-pane windows give
you a number of incentives for
homeowners in Hingham, one being improved
energy efficiency. Whether 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 option if you’re wanting better efficiency.
Most new double-pane
windows are filled with 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, you’ve
likely developed a bigger
leak and the gas has been substituted with moisture.
There are a couple things that you can do to determine
if this is the case:
Depending on how old
your windows are and the conditions impacting
the leak, it could make sense to take a look at 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 bills. Stop by

- Clean the exterior and interior portion of your
glass to be sure 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 decide if you can claim it
under your warranty.
