A question on window

I have a rather large (about 11 feet long by 3 or so foot high) half moon window above the picture window in my family room. The seals have let go and there is condensation in between the panes. I have already spent the budget for house repairs this year and I would like to wait until next year. I live in the Mid West. Any particular reason I can't wait?

How old is it. Some windows have long guarantees. Do you know the brand?

There is a new service where I live (Vancouver, BC) that removes the fog and reseals the window. Much cheaper than replacing the window. It is new and don't know of anyone who has used the service. The company is called DeFOGit and their phone is 1-888-DEFOGIT. Don't know if the number will work from were you live, but it is worth a try. It may be a franchise and if so, there may be a franchise in your area too. Good luck! Des

Don't think there's a problem other than the possibility of the condensation dripping down the wall; shouldn't be enough to make anything soggy or anything like that. I think you're talking more of condensation between the two glass panes.

the condensation freezing and thawing over the winter.
BTW: I did not know RIME was still up and functioning. THAT brings back memories...

Hi Kurt!
KU> Thanks. I was just worried about the possibility of damage from KU> the condensation freezing and thawing over the winter. If the condensate freezes between the window panes I think the worst it would do is crack one of the panes It's already damaged so nothing lost. There won't be enough to be concerned with if any gets between the walls. It's not like there's a gaping hole.
