While there are some window contractors who claim that immediate window replacement is unwarranted even when signs of condensation start to appear, the root cause of the condensation suggests otherwise. Here are some notes from our team at Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod explaining why condensation happens and what makes window replacement the best option for tackling this problem.
Visible signs of condensation are an indication that moisture is collecting in the space between the panes of your window. It’s easy to spot because the windows will appear foggy, but you won’t be able to clean off the moisture because the problem is on the inside.
Choosing Replacement Windows
The gases used to fill the space between window panes help achieve better insulation. They are clear and odorless, which is why some homeowners are unaware of their presence and purpose. If moisture has formed in this space, the window’s gas fill may have already started leaking out. Even if you’re able to get rid of the moisture, you’ll be left with a window that negatively affects your home’s energy consumption and temperature control. The gas blend we use for our window replacement products at Renewal by Andersen of Cape Cod help keep our windows as energy-efficient as possible. Without it, our products simply wouldn’t be the same.
Choosing to replace your windows once condensation occurs will give you the peace of mind of knowing that the integrity of your home’s windows has been restored. You’ll no longer have to worry about increasing energy bills, you won’t have to sacrifice your home’s visual appeal by putting up with foggy windows and you’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing that your windows will last you for much longer.
