Is your double or triple glazed window beginning to look foggy? If it is, it is simply an indication that the window has reached the end of its deigned lifespan. Many people are shocked when they hear this, but it is a fact that all double and triple pane windows will start to fog up eventually.
When you understand the reason, the explanation is simple. Your double glazed window is not totally airtight. If it was, it would actually explode when the sun shines on it! What happens is a phenomenon known as solar pumping. The sun heats the air between the two panes of glass which then causes the air to expand. As it does, tiny amounts of air are forced out into the atmosphere under pressure. Later on, when the sun is no longer on the window and the air cools, the reverse happens. The lowering pressure between the two panes means that air is drawn back into the window, and this air contains tiny amounts of moisture.
The moisture is then absorbed by a silica desiccant which is contained in the spacer bar. Over the years, the desiccant gets to a point where it is saturated and cannot absorb any more. Now the moisture in the air has nowhere to hide and begins to fog up your window.
Until recently, the solution was to replace the window. However, thanks to a revolutionary new process you can now get foggy window repair in Winnipeg. Yes, Window Medics can repair your foggy windows and give them a lease of life for as much as another 20 years!
The fact is that, over a period of time, all double or triple pane windows will fail and begin to fog. The average age of windows that Window Medics is called out to repair is just 12 years. How long the window lasts before fogging takes place depends entirely on the quality of the silica desiccant used in the first place. Using this new process, we can actually make your windows last for nearly twice as long as they were originally designed to last.
What is important is to call us out to repair your windows when you first see the signs of fogging. If you let it continue, the moisture will eventually damage the glass to a point where it may need to be replaced, which is a further unnecessary expense. At Window Medics, we are all about saving you money.
