My house is 35 years old and the double pane windows are original. A few of them have begun to lose their seal and are taking on an almost opaque look. I’ve heard that I can have a professional put air in and reseal these windows? Any credence to that? -Kristen

Hi Kristen,

As double pane windows age, moisture can breach the seal and condense between the layers of glass. When this happens the seal can’t be repaired, and your best bet is to remove and replace the glass.
