What causes the fogging of windows

In order to have better appreciation of our defogging service, you must first understand the causes of fogging windows. First, you need to be acquainted with the anatomy of modern windows. Generally, they consist of two panes mounted on a frame. Between these two glass walls, manufacturers add silica beads. You’ve probably crossed paths with this additive: it is usually found in sachet form to absorb moisture.

As time goes by, this absorbent material, subjected to the elements, becomes saturated with moisture. It is an integral part of the aging process of your windows. However, this saturation can lead to a loss of efficiency of your thermos windows, especially in terms of thermal insulation.

Over time, the sun’s rays warm the moisture-saturated air between the two panes of your window. As the air is warmer, it expands, which increases the pressure inside the window. It is at this precise moment that the unpleasant mist begins to appear. Before thinking about having your damaged windows replaced, consult the defogging experts at Basco Windows and Doors.
