What is a Fogged Window?

Have you noticed your windows start to fog?

Does the fog in your window clear up at times?

Insulated window units are made up of two panes of glass separated by a spacer.  A sealant is applied along the edges of the unit to seal off the space between the two panes of glass.  This space provides a measure of insulation and allows for you to see out the window. When this seal fails, outside air and humidity are able to enter the space between the window panes.  The difference in temperatures on the outside and the inside of the windowpanes can cause condensation to form and create a “fogged” window.

The seal between the windowpanes can be broken for several reasons.  Age is the primary reason as the sealant begins to degrade.  Movement and flexing of the windows over time can cause also cause the seal to break.
