Repair Misted Windows by ‘Washing’?
I have heard of a system that “washes” the inside of the glass to fix it. Do you do that? To us, this system has drawbacks. When companies do the wash method, they drill holes in the glass and wash the inside of it. Afterwards the company inserts plugs into the two holes. We don’t do that because we believe that a sealed unit is best as a sealed unit. This means you will lose some thermal efficiency. in our opinion it is best to replace the misted panes.
