Condensation Within the Panes

When condensation appears between double-glazed panes, this could indicate a problem with the seals inside the unit. Moisture between the panes of a double-glazed window is a sure sign that the seal around the perimeter has broken. The problem could be a result of poor installation. Replacing the window is usually the best way to ensure a lasting solution.

Increased Energy Bills

If you have energy-efficient windows in your home, check if there’s a difference in your monthly bills. If there’s still no change, perhaps it’s due to poor installation. Windows account for up to 30% of heating costs, but your costs may be higher over the winter. Fortunately, our selection of High Performance™ Low-E4® glass offers up to 45% more energy efficiency. When combined with Fibrex® frame materials, your windows can save you on energy bills.

Poor Operation

This means that your windows do not open or close properly. This can happen when the installer fails to follow the guidelines of the manufacturers. This can also be due to a wrong sash size. Either way, this problem compromises the efficiency and security of your home, so you need to address it immediately.
