Is It Time to Replace Your Thermal Window?
If condensation is building up on the inside of your sealed unit then it has “failed”. This means that the sealant has degraded and the desiccant, a chemical that binds to water, is used up. This is the time to replace, not repair the unit.
Choices of spacer bar type and color, Low-E, argon gas, sealant, single or double seal, and the glass type and thickness must all be considered in order to maintain appearance and thermal performance of the window systems.
