Double Pane Windows
Double pane windows give a home a valuable extra dose of insulation from the heat of summer and cold of winter, but sometimes the seal separating the two sheets of glass can develop a leak. Moisture forms between the two panes, and a foggy window is the result. We care for homes in Heber Springs and Greers Ferry, and the specialists at Glass Doctor® of North Central Arkansas will clear up the problem fast, keeping cost and hassle to a minimum.
The Fog in Insulated Glass Units
Homeowners who have made the smart investment in double pane windows will sometimes notice condensation form in the spacer area between the two panes. Many will assume this is a natural result of large differences between outside and inside air temperature. That is a mistake.
Insulated glass units are manufactured with two panes separated by a carefully sealed spacer, which is sometimes also packed with dehumidifying elements such as argon or krypton. This spacer's job is to neutralize condensation-causing temperatures before water or fog forms on either pane of glass. While condensation is certainly natural on single pain windows that are exposed to temperature extremes, double pane windows, when functioning properly, should not develop water.
Fog in a double pain window is usually a sign the spacer seal is leaking. That means your home's insulation is not as tight as it could be. And your view of the outside is lacking too. We specialize in quick and easy double pain window repair for homeowners of Heber Springs and Greers Ferry. There's usually no need to replace an entire window. The trained, experienced team at Glass Doctor of North Central Arkansas will locate and replace the faulty glass.
