How to Prevent Condensation Inside Double Glazing

June 7, 2024


Are you experiencing problems with condensation on your windows? Is the condensation located between the two panes of glass on the double-glazed unit? If this sounds all too familiar, we’re here to help you resolve your condensation problems.

Why do I have condensation on my double-glazed windows?

The most common reason for condensation forming inside your home is a lack of ventilation. When water molecules in the air meet a cold surface (your windowpane), they react to form water droplets. This is the main cause of condensation forming on the interior windowpane inside your home.

The best way to prevent interior condensation is by improving airflow around your home. This can be done by using mechanical ventilation systems or air conditioning units. These methods, however, can be expensive to install and to run.

A simpler yet equally effective ventilation method is installing trickle vents on your window frames. Trickle vents can be fitted onto the window frame to provide controlled ventilation when needed. They are great way to improve your home’s energy efficiency and prevent condensation.

How can I prevent condensation inside my double-glazed unit?

If you’ve noticed condensation building up in between the two panes of your double-glazed windows, it indicates that the window seals have failed. In some cases, it may be possible to remove the seals and replace the glass, then re-seal the window. Unfortunately, this method is not always the best option.

When your glazed unit has failed, the best option is to replace the glazed unit with a new high performing alternative. Modern windows are built to a far better standard than older models. Therefore, when you invest in new double-glazed windows, you can solve your condensation problems and improve your home’s thermal performance, saving you money on home heating and creating a healthier more comfortable interior living space.

Why do I have condensation on the exterior of my windows?

If you’ve noticed condensation forming on the exterior of your windowpanes, there’s no need to worry. This indicates that your windows are working exactly as they should be, blocking cold air from entering your home and keeping warm air inside.
