 Re: argon window

Author: windowmann2000 (---.mad.wi.charter.com)

You can have Low-e and argon and still have ice on your glass. I've got some pictures of a vinyl window with ice all over the bottom frame and on the lower glass. The install was done very poorly with the exterior edges not caulked and no insulation under the window. The exterior botton expander was 1/4" too short and not caulked. To make things worse the customer's hunidity was over 60% at 10 below outside. So there are quite a number of variables that can make this happen.
