Double-Insulated Window Repair 

Double Insulated, or dual pane glass, is a window which has two layers of glass with a trapped layer of air between. This method of window insulation has been effective since the early eighties and is still the standard today. Most all houses built after 1984 have double insulated glass. If you have ever bought a soft drink you know that styrofoam keeps your drink insulated longer than plastic.This is because of the trapped air bubbles in the foam. Double insulated glass has the same concept.The trapped air keeps the temperature on both sides of the glass from equilibriating. 

Failed or Fogged Window.  (Failed Thermo-Seal)

This is what it looks like when a double-insulated glass seal fails or fogs. Although this is a more serious case, once you see water or condensation between the glass the seal has been compromised. What has occured here is that the barrier of air, which is much like a cooler or styrofoam cup and was once insulating the window,has been interrupted by a void or leak in the seal causing a foggy appearance, which reduces the insulation factor anywhere from 48 to 86% depending on your window, down to less than 25%. That reults from two to over three times the energy loss. 
Often windows are the weakest link of insulation on your house it can certainly have an effect on your energy savings and your electric bill. Replace it and it pays for itself.
 

Single-Glazed Window Repair

A single glazed window is one layer of glass and is usually found as a stock window on houses built up into the early eighties.
