Condensation not between the double glazed unit

Posted by Dave Waterman, on
At this time of the year I get condensation not between the double glazed unit but at the bottom of the windows on the inside of the room, once the curtains are open and the water wiped away the windows are fine, until next morning when the curtains are open again.

if you have a radiator under the window this could be the problem as the warm air hitting the cold air on the glass will cause this

Hi Dave ignore Barry the unit has not failed.The condensation would have to be between the glass for it to have failed.You need to create an air flow either with vents or dehumidifier.

Hi Dave Your double glazed unit has failed, and the only way to resolve your problem is to change the unit.

Hi Dave You need a vent fitted If there is no heating underneath water will condensate as there is no natural air flow.

Good evening, Do you have trickle vents? If not they can be fitted when fitted this will help as the air flow will evaporate the moisture. Kind regards Bespoke contractors LTD

Now this is normal thing to happen if there is no vents in the window frame, then you need to open your windows for an hour a day let say, you'll find the quality of air in the house is much better, Some windows do have vents, however sometimes they get blocked with dirt or dust, spider webs just have a look, but ventilation by opening your windows daily is always the best, for your health as well because if you won't, the mold will start to grow eventually
