Misted and Replacement Double Glazing – Window SOS

Misted & Replacement Double Glazing

Failed or Broken down double glazed units as know within the industry, are unsightly and in most cases entirely preventable. Double glazed glass units can and will last 30+ years if installed correctly.

Every replacement glass unit we install, we will explore the probable cause of product failure to prevent repeat issues. Our engineers are extensively trained to rectify these problems whilst installing the replacement glass unit. More information on why double glazed units fail, can be found in our FAQ'S page.

Misted Double Glazed Failed Units are double or triple glazed sealed window units that have excess moisture trapped in the cavity between the panes of glass. This is caused where there is a breach in the hermetic seal (airtight seal) around the edge of the sealed unit allowing moist air to enter the cavity of the unit over a period of days, weeks or months.

When the temperature rises the moist air trapped within the double glazed window unit condenses and over a period of time gives a white cloudy effect which to the eye is irritating and unsightly.

Over 90% of failed/misted double glazing sealed units are south-east to south-west facing due to the fact that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, providing the greatest change in daily temperature. The increased temperature heats the sealant around the perimeter of the double glazed unit, allowing the two panes of glass to move or slip over a period of time.

In the winter months where the outside temperature drops significantly, this can cause condensation on the internal surface of sealed units due to the increased gap between internal and external temperature. This causes the glass surface to be much colder than the room temperature.
