How can I tell if my double glazing units need replacing?

Double glazing units can fail due to a number of reasons. Age is one of the main factors contributing to double glazing unit failure. The materials used to manufacture the units can degrade over time leading to seal leaks and heat loss.

The easiest way to tell if a double glazed unit has failed is to feel the temperature difference in the room compared to others. If you notice one room is significantly colder than another you may need a unit replacement.

There are several visual indicators that will highlight a damaged double glazed unit, these include visible damage to the glass on either side of the double glazing, fogging within the unit and mould on the inside of the unit.

Double glazing’s efficiency comes from having two panes of glass sealed together with an air tight void between them. This void is then filled with a gas which aids in the insulation. Once the air tight seal has been broken the unit’s efficiency will reduce quite considerably.

When the seals have broken other gasses and moisture can find its way into the sealed double glazing unit reducing its effectiveness. Once moisture has been introduced into the unit the process of heat transfer from one side to the next is greatly increased leading to a substantial heat loss in the winter periods. The easiest indicator to this is fogging on the inside of the unit. Condensation settling on the inside of the glass comes from moisture on the inside of the panel condensing on the cool parts of the window (normally lower corners of each pane).
