Two window panes in my house broke this past year. They are double-paned
windows, not sure if there is gas inside??
One in the living room broke last winter out of the blue, just broke to
pieces as we were watching TV. The inside pane broke.
The other window broke a few weeks ago, again out of the blue. This was
the outside pane. And in the dining room, about 30 feet from the first
window. No bird hit it because the screen was fine, I'm guessing.
These windows are both on the south side of the house.
I believe it's from the house settling? But that is another post
What I need to know is, can I just order two pieces of glass from my
local hardware store and buy some wrear view mirror glue and put the
panes back in myself? Or do I have to order the new pane as a whole and
have a professional put it back in?
Of course, if there was some sort of gas inside, I can't put that back
Should I be worried about the possible R value loss?
