If you wake up to foggy windows, don’t assume you’re experiencing a lake effect or the fog that we’re so used to near the escarpment. When it comes to your windows and doors, Burlington experts Custom Window Designs have some insight into the fog you’re noticing on your window panes.
Usually, when you’re experiencing condensation on your windows what is happening is the seal on your window has failed and moisture has entered between the panes, which reacts with the insulating agent in your windows and creates a fog.
If you’re seeing fog on your windows then it’s possible that the windows can be fixed, or it may need to be replaced. Of course your third option is to leave it (if you’re obsessive about cleanliness then this may not be an option for you). If you choose to ignore the fog on your windows then you can be sure that the problem will grow worse over time, not to mention that windows with a broken seal are not properly insulating your home, causing you to waste energy and money.
The best option is to have your window evaluated to see if a repair is possible. You may find that you need to defog the window, or replace just the sash areas of your window. Or, in some cases a fix may not be possible and your windows may need to be replaced. Either way, don’t wait any longer! Call the experts at Custom Window Designs for a free estimate.
