Insulated Glass Repair & Replacement In Atlanta

If You Can See Condensation in Your Windows, It May be Time to See a Specialist

If you have condensation between the panes of your insulated glass windows, you may be losing more than a clear view – your energy savings could be going out the window. Insulated glass seals out heat and cold, making homes more comfortable and energy efficient – but when the seal fails, moisture accumulates between the glass panes, which results in a less attractive window, a less comfortable home, and higher energy bills.

Fortunately, you don’t have to replace the entire window to clear up the problem. One of our specialties is insulated window glass replacement. Instead of replacing your entire window, we can often install insulated glass replacements in your existing frames for less than you may think. And in cases where complete replacement with new frames is need, we can do that too.

What Are the Benefits of Insulated Window Glass?

Insulated glass windows offer improved efficiency, comfort and value. However, if the seal on your windows has failed, you are losing these benefits. Glass Doctor can install insulated glass replacements instead of replacing your entire windows, offering you the following advantages:

Energy Efficiency

Insulated glass replacements will restore your home’s energy efficiency by reducing heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter. As a result, your heating and cooling systems will run less, saving you money.

How Are Insulated Glass Units Made?

An insulated glass unit consists of at least two pieces of glass and an insulating spacer. A spacer is a metal tube around the perimeter of the insulated glass unit that separates the two pieces of glass. Spacers are usually 3/16 of an inch wide or larger. Spacers are filled with a special moisture absorbing material called a desiccant (like the little bags you find in a shoebox with your brand new shoes).

The perimeter of the entire unit is sealed with a high-grade sealant to prevent condensation from accumulating between the panes. Some insulated glass units include argon or krypton gas added to the airspace between the two panes to provide additional insulation.

Why Does Insulated Glass Sometimes Develop Moisture Between the Panes?

The space between the panes of an insulated glass window is either filled with gas or vacuumed out, then sealed to prevent heat and air transfer. Condensation can develop between the panes if the seal fails. When this happens, the vacuum or gas escapes and outside air is free to invade the space, resulting in a buildup of moisture or condensation. Seals can fail due to faulty insulation or inferior sealants. Extreme temperatures or weather conditions can accelerate the problem.
