Article Summary: 

This article discusses sealed window units, which are a type of advanced glazing system that feature two or more sheets of glass separated by an adhesive spacer and filled with air, argon, or krypton. The article discusses common causes of damage to IGUs, including poor window installation, exposure to harsh chemicals, strong winds, and physical force. It also lists five signs that indicate sealed window units need to be replaced, such as foggy and moist windows, cracked or chipped glass, drafty windows, glass distortion, and water leaks. The article emphasizes that replacing sealed window units is not a DIY job and recommends contacting a window repair specialist. In some cases, replacing the sealed window unit is not enough, and new replacement windows may be necessary. The article concludes by promoting energy-efficient windows offered by Clera Windows + Doors.
