Re: 1989 Andersen Windows (low e?)

Thanks everyone for your insight. My wife has found some documentation on the windows and they are indeed not Andersen, they are Willmar Windows, head office was located in Winnipeg at the time. It seems they might have been bought out by Jeld-Wenn but I am not sure of that. The documentation does n...

Re: 1989 Andersen Windows (low e?)

Once again thanks windownerd. I was hoping to only replace the IGU. The windows are wood windows but with aluminum cladding on the outside. I am not windows proficient, but when you mention glazing bead, I think you refer to the little sealing strip on the inside portion of the IGU that is sticking ...

Re: 1989 Andersen Windows (low e?)

Thanks Windownerd I do not have the glass that is in the picture. I have double pane glass 32 years old.

Re: 1989 Andersen Windows (low e?)

20210119_131353.jpg I found this image on an early February post by Scuderia01. I think this is what Oberon meant by welded glass unit. This is not what I have in my windows, so the thought of my windows possibly having a low e coating still exists, but I still don't know for sure. Is there any foo...

Re: 1989 Andersen Windows (low e?)

Thanks Oberon

I cannot see a metal spacer between the panes of glass. There is a black spacer that looks to be a little bit gooey, but still separates the glass consistently. Is this what you mean by welded?

1989 Andersen Windows (low e?)

My first post to this site. I have 1989 Andersen Windows with dual pane glass in them. I would like to determine if they have low e glass, before I committ to replacing the panes. Etching on the glass is IGMAC R-Plus 1989 WPG Most glass companies in Calgary don't have employees that were born before...

identifying old sealed unit (Low e?)

I have some 32 year old Andersen windows with double pane glass units. I am trying to determine if they had a low e coating. The etchings on the glass are

IGMAC

Thanks for any insight.
