It's likely that the seal has failed on your insulating glass unit. In some cases the glass actually comes loose from the aluminum spacer bar, allowing cold outside air between the glass. It would make your double pane glass unit act like a single pane of glass, which would be much colder than the sealed IGU's on either side. Replacing the IGU is probably your best option. Any glass shop can do this you you, just call them for an estimate.
Hi Highplaces, I agree with Bill. Even replacing poor windows has a long payback. If your home is in good shape, but you would still like to make improvements, you are a good candidate for an energy audit. Homes that are in trouble, actually don't need an audit as a blind person can find things to fix. But well insulated homes need the pressure testing and infrared camera to detect those hidden flaws that can make a difference. Then there is the step beyond. Windows would still be near the last, but super insulating everything and adding an ERV (energy recovery ventilator) can take you to a new low in energy use. It is fun, rewarding, a good value, and simple a few years ahead of what we will probably have to do anyway. IMO Just to add, research now has windows that are better than walls. Just have to get the price down several notches. Bud
