Definitely replace the window. Read the warranty before you proceed with any window replacement company and make sure you keep a copy.

as far as I know there is no effective way to permantly remove condensation between two pieces of glass other than complete replacement. if you are in New York call for a free estimate 1-718-863-5278

The defogging services may temporarily remove the moisture, but once the seal is broken it WILL leak again, refogging in from a week to a year or so - replace the glass unit. This does NOT mean replacing the whole window and frame and such - just having the glass unit (the glass and the enclosing aluminum frame that holds the glass) replaced by a window repair company. The new glass comes facctory sealed into the metal glass frame, which is then caulked into the wood or vinyl or fiberglass or whatever window frame.

Here is a link I was looking for earlier but could not find - just popped up when I was looking for something else - addresses the services that claim they can defog your window and seal it without taking the glass unit out.
