Kelowna Window Glass Sealed Unit Repair

Modern technology has made it possible to design more energy-efficient windows such as the sealed window unit. A sealed window unit is a window made of two or more panes of glass, separated by a spacer bar and filled with air, argon, or krypton. The gas is a poor conductor of heat, creating a barrier between the warm room and the cold temperature outside. The unit is sealed around the edges making the window airtight. Sealed window units are also known as thermal units, thermo, insulated glazing, or insulating glass units (IGUs).

The Benefits of a Sealed Window Unit

Sealed window units are an advanced glazing technology that has enhanced properties and performance compared to single pane glass. Its benefits include the following:

  • Its insulating properties ensure you are warm on cold days and cool on warm days.
  • You use less energy and pay less in electricity bills.
  • Less electricity use in turn creates a lower carbon footprint.
  • The safety of your home increases. Sealed window units are harder to break and are sealed tighter than other windows.
  • They reduce the amount of moisture on your window panes. The airtight seals prevent condensation build-up and mold development.
  • More sealed units result in less noise. If your home is located in a generally noisy area, this benefit is important to you.

Common Causes of Sealed Units Failure

Even as they have been designed well and installed robustly, sealed window units can fail over time due to different causes that can cause damage to the seal including:

  • Harsh weather conditions and strong winds that put pressure on the glass panes, as well as changes in temperature
  • A process called solar pumping is one of the main reasons window seals fail eventually. In this process, the sun shines down on the window causing the glass to expand while overnight, the glass cools and shrinks.
  • Exposure to harsh chemicals
  • Excessive physical force exerted on the glass or a projectile that hits it
  • Faulty window installation that results in pressure on the panes.

Any of these causes may result in air leakage and the sealed unit may no longer provide effective insulation.

Signs that Your Sealed Unit Needs Repair

The most obvious sign your sealed unit needs repair is mist inside the glass unit and condensation inside the window. It is the immediate sign that your window seal is broken. Often, you can spot the moisture only in the corners. Even then, this means your seal is busted and needs to be fixed. Considerable heat loss in the room from the inefficient and poorly maintained sealed unit is another indicator of your sealed window unit needing repair.

Fixing your sealed unit yourself is by no means quick and easy. You have to have the skillset, a lot of tools, several hours, and patience. Your Kelowna sealed unit repair is a tedious technical process best left to the professionals.
