Here is a useful article in French how to protect your windows in autumn.

Ne laissez pas cet automne pluvieux embuer vos fenêtres à double vitrage Par Rémi Leroux

De la condensation est apparue à l’intérieur du double vitrage des fenêtres de votre salon? Voici ce que vous pouvez faire pour régler le problème.

L’une des fenêtres du salon de Constance, lectrice de Protégez-Vous, présente des traces de condensation depuis quelques années et celle-ci se demande quelles solutions s’offrent à elle. Installées en 1993, les fenêtres commencent à avoir du vécu, explique cette jeune mère de famille de Longueuil, qui reconnaît n’avoir rien fait jusqu’à présent pour régler le problème de buée. Or, avec les nombreuses journées pluvieuses de ce début d’automne, le problème s’est accentué. «La présence d’humidité s’explique en général par une usure des composants isolants de la fenêtre», dit Annie Gauthier, conseillère en communication et porte-parole chez CAA-Québec. Sous l’effet du soleil et des différences de température, les joints se dilatent et se contractent et, avec le temps, finissent par se fissurer, laissant passer de l’air entre les deux parois de la vitre thermos, précise-t-elle. L’air se condense ensuite et des gouttelettes d’eau se forment. La vitre thermos est composée de «deux panneaux de verre maintenus espacés par un intercalaire collé et rempli d’un produit déshydratant pour absorber l’humidité de l’air intérieur lors de sa fabrication», explique le site guideperrier.com, spécialisé en rénovation.

En plus de vous gâcher la vue, un verre thermos embué perd donc ses propriétés isolantes. Dans le cas des fenêtres de Constance, l’humidité a même fini par faire rouiller l’intercalaire en aluminium qui recouvre les isolants. Pour régler le problème, deux solutions s’offrent à elle.

Solution 1: le désembuage Le principe est simple: il s’agit d’évacuer l’air humide contenu dans le verre thermos et de le remplacer par de l’air sec. Pour y parvenir, faites appel à une entreprise spécialisée dans le désembuage. Le professionnel percera deux petits trous aux extrémités de la vitre. Une solution nettoyante à base d’alcool (qui sèche rapidement et ne laisse pas de trace) sera ensuite injectée afin d’extraire l’eau et l’humidité accumulées entre les deux vitres. Une fois l’air asséché, les orifices sont refermés à l’aide de bouchons résistants. Le désembuage peut être une bonne solution à la condition de s’y prendre à temps. «Il faut agir entre six mois et un an maximum après l’apparition des premiers signes d’humidité, sans quoi le traitement risque de ne plus fournir sa pleine efficacité», fait remarquer Annie Gauthier. Le coût d’un désembuage est d’environ 80 $ par fenêtre. Toutefois, l’une des compagnies sollicitées par Constance ne se déplaçait qu’à partir de trois fenêtres à traiter.

Solution 2: changer le thermos Pour Écohabitation, le désembuage est une solution temporaire. L’organisme spécialisé dans l’habitation écologique suggère plutôt de remplacer la vitre thermos de votre fenêtre, ce qui permettra d’en renforcer l’efficacité énergétique. Écohabitation recommande par exemple de choisir un double vitrage recouvert d’une pellicule à faible émissivité Low-E sur la partie intérieure et rempli de gaz argon, meilleur isolant que l’air.

Les conseils d’Écohabitation en cas de buée dans un double vitrage:

La technique du désembuage n’est par ailleurs pas adaptée pour le double vitrage conçu avec un gaz inerte (argon ou krypton) puisque l’air remplacerait l’argon. «La fenêtre perdrait donc ses qualités écoénergétiques», précise Annie Gauthier. Constance n’a pas eu d’autre choix que d’opter pour un remplacement du verre thermos. «On m’a expliqué que nous avions trop tardé à intervenir et que le désembuage n’aurait de toute façon aucun effet», dit-elle. Coût de l’opération: environ 250 $ pour la fenêtre.

Invitation: A private art exhibition with artists Leïla Labelle et Nathalie Lapointe

Invitation: A private art exhibition with artists Leïla Labelle et Nathalie Lapointe.

Take advantage of being among these two artists to admire their work of art. Enjoy complimentary cocktail drink.

Leïla Labelle

Leïla combines in a very personal way, the style of ancient frescos with traditional symbols, geometric figures, Moorish motifs, Venetian medallions, hieroglyphic writings and calligraphy of the world.

Leïla's steps to creation of her artwork can vary in the creative process. The texture is created to give the illusion of an ancient fresco aged by the passage of time. Many coats of glazes worked in rising intensity in her colour choice, somewhat soaring and at other times temperate. The artist also uses encaustic technique, using beeswax to create different textures and effects


Nathalie Lapointe

We contemplate the works of Nathalie Lapointe as if we were in front of a Fata Morgana mirage (assigned by the men of the Middle Age to the famous fairy Morgane, inhabiting a mysterious island and using magic ...) hence the name of this curious event of light rays properties, creating a surreal image of distant towers which appear to float in an equilibrium surface tension.

High in colors and contrasts, the paintings of Nathalie Lapointe transport us into her expanding universe and evolution that reveal towns that sparkle like a jewel box.

Looking forward to welcoming you,

The Residia Team
