    Hi,

    Was wiping some condensation off my windows this morning & noticed that 3 of the small top long openings have sealed units where the metal seperating strip have bowed upwards. This all seems a bit odd as they are all on the same side of the house. I assume they shouldn't do that & I should call the window company back to replace the sealed units. Is this a cosmetic thing or will the seal have gone on the sealed unit?

    Any help appreciated

    Faulty dg units I'm afraid, the silver spacer bars are hollow and are filled with desicant crystals which absorb moisture, according to my glass unit supplier this is caused by over filling of the bars, the units are now on borrowed time and will steam up pretty soom
