What causes condensation on my windows ?


Windows can often get moisture or "sweating" by having excess humidity in the air. When the humidity makes contact with the cooler surface of the glass, the "sweating" occurs. Great effort has been put into the construction of our units to regulate the interior temperature of the unit as best as possible, While this condensation is annoying, it also indicates excessive humidity inside the room which should be reduced. Use fans after showers & in laundry rooms. The amount of house plants can effect humidty levels as well. Getting a de-humidifier is also wise decision when this occurs frequently.(Read More....)



My windows appear foggy inside the unit. Can this be fixed?


A sealed unit is made up of many parts. One of them is a desicant that is built into the edge that absorbs any moisture that may condense within the unit. When this desicant is filled to capacity or there is a breach in the seal of the unit, fogging can occur. Some company's will claim to be able to fix the problem by creating a vent in the broken sealed unit to allow the moisture to disipate, If you want all the energy benefits a sealed unit is designed for, the only real long term solution is to replace the sealed unit.




What is Low E?


Low-emission glass (Low-E) is a clear glass, it has a microscopically-thin coating of metal oxide. This allows the sun's heat and light to pass through the glass into the building. At the same time it blocks heat from leaving the room, reducing heat loss considerably.



What is Argon?


An inert, nontoxic gas used in insulating glass units to reduce heat transfer.




Can P.V.C. windows be any colour other than white?


Yes. A very unique technology is used. A waterborne coating system developed specifically to bond with PVC. It is extremely durable, the colours are uv resistant & we can even match existing colours.
