Minimise Condensation

Condensation is a common issue with single glazing windows. Condensation is caused as water vapour in the air builds up on surfaces that are at lower temperatures. A build up of condensation can result in droplets forming on the glass, and form damp and mould. This won’t just affect the look of your property but may also cause health issues.

Double glazed windows and doors can reduce condensation due to the airtight seal between the panes. This prevents condensation from building up, minimising mould. Condensation can also make a room feel cold as well as affect the look of the profiles.
