How Do You Know When to Replace Your Insulated Windows?
Knowing whether you need your thermal insulated units replaced comes down to one simple question: Are your windows foggy? If so, it is very likely you need new ones. Foggy windows are a major sign that the seal attached to both pieces of glass is allowing moisture to come through, which in turn becomes trapped between the two pieces of glass. When that happens, not only are your insulated units failing, but it could be driving up the cost of your heating and cooling bills.

What are Thermal Insulated Units?
A thermal insulated unit simply means there are two pieces of glass with a seal in between them to absorb moisture. They are also referred to as double-paned or insulated windows. These types of windows are more energy efficient, and are designed to keep cold air out during the winter and hot air out during the summer.
What Causes Them to Fail?
There are many factors that can cause an insulated window to fail, including bad caulking, poor sealants, and a lack of professional installation. Your unit can also start to wear down due to solar pumping, which is the constant expanding and contracting of your unit when the temperature changes.
When the seal between the two pieces of glass breaks, air gets in and fogs up your window. That extra moisture can also cause mildew and mold to form. When this happens, it simply means your window is no longer doing its job and is allowing hot or cold air to come through a lot faster. As a result, the cost to heat or cool your home or business can quickly go up.
How Does Thermal Insulated Unit Replacement Work?
If your thermal insulated units need replacing, Kryger has you covered. In most cases, we can replace just the glass unit without having to replace the entire window. Whether your frame is made of wood, metal or vinyl, we can work with whatever you have to make sure your new insulated window will do its job, and does it well.
We ask that you bring your insulated window in so we know exactly what materials are needed and get the correct sizing for your new unit. Most units are easy to remove on your own. Here’s a look at how to remove some of the common windows:
Double-Hung Windows: These are the most typical type of window and slide up and down. Most of them have release levers next to the frame. Push those towards the center lock, and pull the top of the window sash towards you. Carefully remove it one side at a time so the springs holding it in place can release on both sides.
Slider Windows: These can be usually be taken out by lifting up on the sash and swinging the bottom towards you. In some cases you may have to remove the trim around it first.
Casement Windows: A crank is used to open these types of windows, and it swings outward as it opens. You can typically remove these by lifting the sash and swinging the bottom out.
Before attempting to remove your insulated units, make sure you are wearing thick gloves, and check for any pieces of glass that may have been left behind if your window was broken. If you’re still unsure about how to remove it or how the process works, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 866.259.2081.
