What Causes Blown or Misted Double Glazed Windows?

Windows mist or get full of water or condensation for a variety of reasons, this could be age related, poor installation, or due to weather.

Age of the Sealed Double Glazed Units Can Cause Misted or Blown Windows

The age of the double glazing can be a factor.

As the windows get older, the seals can break down. This lets moisture get into what was once a sealed unit and causes the glass tp mist.

This seems to be a factor in about 10% of the double glazed window panes we replace.

Installation of the Double Glazing Can Cause Misted Windows

The original installation could have been flawed.

Bad installation can let the two panes of glass move. This breaks the seal and causes condensation or misted double glazing.

Or it could be a screw has come up from the frame into the sealant, breaking it, and then you have to deal with the window condensation.

This seems to be a factor in about 60% of the blown replacement window panes.

Weather Can Cause Misted Double Glazing Glass to Fail

Another thing that can cause failure is weather. Hot spells can break down the sealed glass unit. For instance, a south facing side of the house has much more expansion and contraction of the sealed units than the north facing side of the house.

This expansion causes the seal to fail on double glazing, it breaks down and your windows fog or mist.

Again, this seems to be a factor in about 30% of the blown double glazed windows we replace.
