Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

What you describe is seal failure on the thermopane glass. The only fix is to replace the glass. Drilling holes in the window will make it worse.
