Depending on the type of window, Doctor Foggy Window has found that, on average, 75% of failed windows do not have a seal failure but instead are simply fully saturated from years of Solar Pumping.
Solar pumping naturally occurs during the change from day to night. Sunlight heats the inner airspace of the thermal window cavity during the day and causes the window to pressurize, which forces out small amounts of air within the window cavity through the semi-permeable seal. In the evening, as the temperature drops, the window cools and creates a low pressure area causing small amounts of air to be drawn back into the inner window cavity. The air being drawn back into the window naturally holds moisture and this moisture is absorbed by the windows desiccant material.
Solar Pumping activity over a period of time saturates the Silica desiccant material in the thermal window cavity until eventually fog, condensation or moisture appear on the inside surface of the window. This moisture is trapped within the window and an endless cycle of heating, fogging, cooling, and condensing occurs.
Eventually every thermal pane window will lose the ability to absorb condensation and fog up.
Foggy windows, or windows with condensation and moisture, are primarily due to the inability of the Silica desiccant materials in the thermal window cavity to absorb moisture that naturally builds over time from Solar Pumping. Windows are manufactured with a specific moisture absorption life span (i.e., 5 years, 20 years etc) that is based on solar pumping activity, which causes foggy windows.
Thermal pane windows are made with eventual failure in mind.Window manufacturers know and expect solar pumping to occur. Windows, by design, will without exception, fail. Window manufacturers design windows to have a certain life span based on the quality of the desiccant, or moisture absorbing materials placed inside the spacer bar of a thermal window. This is to prevent foggy window and window condensation problems.
Foggy windows indicate that the moisture absorbing desiccant materials are fully saturated. From this point on moisture accumulates and circulates between the glass window panes, which can cause permanent glass damage if not repaired quickly. Therefore, a foggy window indicates the end to a window's life.
Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Yes it works and we guarantee it. We have been defogging windows for over 16 years and have defogged 1,000's of windows
The cost will vary by the number of windows that need repair and the size of the glass. However we guarantee that the cost will be approximately 1/3 the cost of new glass. Call us for a free quote .
Unfortunately our defog process cannot be used on patio doors. Our process involves drilling through the glass and patio doors are manufactured with tempered glass. We cannot drill through tempered glass. Patio door glass needs to be replaced
We can replace broken glass panes as well as replace broken window hardware like broken locks and cranks
