It sounds like you are asking about windows with insulated glass becoming foggy .
Expert:  Machinc replied 10 months ago.
The seal between the two glass panels becomes worn often just from age and the gas leaks out
Expert:  Machinc replied 10 months ago.
Unfortunately this cannot be prevented .
Expert:  Machinc replied 10 months ago.
Some windows last years longer than others and some leak whiten the first ten years of being installed.
Expert:  Machinc replied 10 months ago.
In many brands replacing the insulated glass is not a viable option . Replacing the entire window then becomes the only option.
Expert:  Machinc replied 10 months ago.
If you know the brand name IE "Anderson " etc. you can check the web site to see what replacement parts (if any ) are available.
Expert:  Machinc replied 10 months ago.
There are contractors who specialize in this type of repair and can replace the double pane glass without having to rely on factory replaxements.
Expert:  Machinc replied 10 months ago.
