If you have foggy windows it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to rip them out and replace them. Our foggy window repair service can give your windows a new lease of life and extend their lifespan by up to twenty years.
During the day, sunlight heats the space in between the two (or three) panes of glass in your window which causes pressure to build up in the void. Tiny amounts of air are forced out through the semi-permanent seal.
In the evening the window begins to cool and this causes low pressure within the window which results in the opposite effect. Air is drawn back in from outside. This air naturally contains tiny amounts of moisture which is absorbed by the silica dessicant in the window cavity. Over a period of years this cycle of solar pumping will mean that eventually the silica dessicant will have absorbed all the moisture it can since it has become fullly saturated.
Now there is nowhere else for the moisture to go, so it starts building up on the glass inside the void creating the foggy effect.
Windows are actually designed with a certain lifespan in mind, since you don’t want exploding windows. Eventually ALL thermal windows will fail. How long the process takes is dependent upon the quality of the silica dessicant used within the spacer bar.
Once fogging occurs the damage will only get worse. More and more moisture builds up reducing the insulating property of the window and will eventually damage the glass. At this point you will usually need to replace the glass or the complete window.
You need to call Window Medics as soon as you experience any fogging. The two main purposes of a window are to let in natural light and to enable you to see out. When the window fogs it may not seriously affect the light coming in, but it will considerably reduce your ability to see through it.
Fortunately, we have the latest equipment to deal with window fogging, and our foggy window repair service can completely restore the thermal efficiency of your window enabling you to take full advantage of the energy savings which you can enjoy once again. Your property will be restored to its former glory and you will be able to see outside.
