I hope you have an awesome day, packed with smiles while searching for your active Birmingham AL Real Estate Dream.

It’s winter, and the temperatures are dropping outside. One  day you’re warming up your home and suddenly you notice something that you  hadn’t seen during the summer. That perfectly clear window suddenly looks foggy. The  next day, it warms up again outside, and to your surprise, the fog disappears  again. So what’s going on?

That intermittent fogging during cold temperatures is an  indication that you have what’s known as a “blown seal” in your  insulated glass window. Insulated glass windows, also known as double-pane windows,  have two panes of glass that are held apart by a metal strip. The strip,  usually somewhere between 1/4 and 3/4 of an inch wide, is adhered to the two  glass panes with a flexible sealant material.

During the manufacturing process, moisture is evacuated from  between the glass panes as they’re sealed together, forming a dead air space.  It’s the combination of the two glass panes and the dead air that gives the  window panes their additional insulating value, and helps keep the window  warmer than one with a single pane of glass.

Once you discover a window with a blown seal, your only  option is to replace the insulated glass unit. You need to do that as soon as  you discover the problem, as the window has lost its insulating value, and the  trapped moisture can potentially lead to other problems. Not to mention the  fact that you can’t see through the window!

The good news is that you must replace only the sealed glass  unit, not the entire window. This is something that you need to leave to the  pros. Contact a glass company in your area and have them make a site visit.  They’ll examine the window, measure the insulated glass unit, including the  size of the air space, and have a new one made up that matches. When the new  one is ready, they’ll come back out, remove the moldings and the old unit, and  install and seal the new unit in place.
