Thermopane Glass Problems
Have new thermopane windows installed. These windows are supposed to be argon gas filled. The other day during early morning 3 of the glass windows fogged up on the outside from the early morning dew. The inside of the glass was fine, only the outside was affected. I have a small pond in the rear yard. What caused the exterior of the glass to have fog on it. The affected windows do not have exterior screens on them if that makes any difference. The window manufacturer said nothing was wrong with the windows and that the exterior fogging was because of the pond in the back yard about 50 feet away. I was thinking that the windows did not have argon gas as they were supposed to have. What is causing this condition as it does not happen all the time. Thanks...
Your problem seems a bit more critical.You should contact with home improvement company. They may solve your problem as I knew they are experienced with dealing Thermopane Glass Problems.
My guess is that it was summer time, it was warm and very humid outside and you had your AC running. Condensation will form on a surface when one side is considerably a different temperature/humidity than the other side. Spacers and Argon Gas can only do so much.
If the spacers are metal or aluminum, the glass will always sweat when the inside and outside temps are differnt.
I HAVE A THERMOPANE WINDOW THAT FOGGED UP ABOUT THREE YEARS AGO. I FINALLY CUT ONE OF THE PANES OUT. THE GLASS LEFT HAS A FILM BUILT UP AND WOULD LIKE TO REMOVE. I TRIED CLR WITH A RAZOR BLADE AND IT DOES WORK BUT HOPE THERE MIGHT BE SOME CHEMICAL THAT WOULD CUT THIS FILM.
Hi , this problem sounds very similar to the one I am having with my new windows as they are also fogging up. Which spacers are you referring to? are they attached to the screen, or are they on the inside of the pane. I am curious if that may also be my issue with my windows.
