What Is a Sealed Window Unit?

 

A sealed window unit refers to the glazed aspect of a window. This unit is placed within the frame. It generally has two to three panes of glass kept apart by a vacuum or gas-filled pocket of air. This area between the panes enables the unit to provide you with insulation by limiting the transfer of heat and cold. Sealed window units will keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. By doing so, they reduce the stress on your HVAC system, decreasing your energy bills.

Importance of Sealed Window Units

 

Using quality sealed window units can be very beneficial for protecting your home. It not only increases the lifespan of your house but also keeps the elements outside. Some of the other benefits include:

  • Insulating properties ensure you are warm during cold days and cool on hot ones.
  • You use less electricity, which in turn creates a lower carbon footprint.

 

If you have a broken pane or a failed seal, the efficiency of the glass has been compromised. In most cases, the window frame itself has not been damaged, if it is still sound, it will continue to serve you well for many years. The sealed unit is the only thing that needs to be replaced and it is unnecessary to do a full frame replacement. We want our customers to consider restoring their windows rather than replacing them. Our goal is to present you with a reasonable quote that offers an environmentally friendly solution without breaking the bank. Plus, our windows can have Low E and Argon gas, which reduces your heating and cooling costs as it’s energy efficient!

 

If you’re still deciding whether the cost will be worth the replacement, Manitoba Hydro Power Smart offers up to a $7500 loan on sealed unit upgrades.

Signs You Need a New Sealed Window Unit

 

As a homeowner, you might not always be able to tell that you require a new sealed window unit. We recommend paying attention to the following signs:
 

  • Foggy windows: Fog and moisture accumulate between the glass panes of your window if the seal is compromised. The fogging is caused by outside air infiltrating the space between the glass.

  • Damaged glazing: Window units with broken glass and seals require replacement. The airtight seal between them is breached and is no longer providing you with insulation.

  • Drafty windows: If your window is letting in drafts, it is no longer performing its job. You might have to replace your unit, depending on the severity of the damage.

  • Damaged frames: Have the frames of your windows become damaged or rotten? They are not insulating your home as they should and are compromising your energy efficiency.

  • Water leakages: Water pooling around your windows or frame is a clear sign that your window unit requires upgrading or replacement. We recommend early action to prevent water damage on your property.

  • What Happens When a Window Seal Is Broken?

    One of the key indicators of a broken window seal is the appearance of condensation between the window panes. If the fogginess doesn't disappear even after you attempt to wipe it away, your window seal will likely fail. The moisture might often appear only in small corners as small spots. Besides affecting your window's appearance, a broken seal will negatively impact its insulation capabilities.
