New double-pane windows offer a host of incentives for
homeowners in Lafayette, one being improved
energy efficiency. Regardless if you’re
researching online or with an expert at a showroom, energy efficiency is an important factor in the purchasing process for replacement windows.
Double-pane windows are a great option if you’re wanting increased efficiency.
Many new double-pane
windows are full of argon, a colorless, nontoxic gas that is more dense than air, which provides additional
insulation from heat and cold.. However, if you notice that your

Depending on the age of your windows and the conditions causing
the leak, it could make sense to start researching replacement windows. Insulation is one of
the most important aspects of your windows, and if
that is altered it can change
your heating and cooling bills. Stop by

under your warranty.
