Alcan Vinyl Windows: Condensation btwn Panes
Does anyone know anything about vinyl windows? Specifically, moisture has gotten between sealed insulating glass panels and the windows are only 7 years old. I would like to avoid replacing them every 5 years or so. Any suggestions as to how to get rid of the moisture and seal them up again?
Find a number for the manufacturer and complain. they may (well there is always a chance) replace them for you. There is no way for you to get rid of the moisture and reseal the panes. And you are right 7 years is too soon for them to fail. I know that Anderson Windows has replaced ones that failed that way after quite a few years, so it is worth trying. It is definitely a defect that caused them to fail.
Storm Window CondensationI have looked on your website and haven't found this exact problem. I have just bought an older home which has old, painted double hung wood windows inside & aluminum storm windows on the outside. I live in Colorado which is a fairly dry climate but I am still getting a lot of condensation on the inside of the storm windows (between the two sets of windows). This happened a little bit even in the summer, but is apparent even more now that it is getting colder. I have lived in Colorado my entire life, and never really had a problem in other homes I've lived in, unless it was extremely cold outside. First of all, is this condensation a particularly bad thing? If so, what is the exact problem, too much ventilation or not enough? Other than replacing all the windows, is there any quick (inexpensive)solution?
It is a problem but a long term sort. The condensation will wet and rewet the wood over and over a period off time cause the sills to rot. The problem of condensation BETWEEN the inner and outer windows is caused by leaky inside windows. The humidity indoors travels into this space and condenses on the cold outer pane. T...
