Does Double Glazing Stop Condensation?

does double glazing stop condensation

The winter can bring multiple problems for homeowners across the country, such as how to stop condensation. Having double glazed home improvement products in your home is a great way to help increase your home’s thermal efficiency. This is possible because double glazing is made from two panes of glass in the middle of the window. The middle pane of glass is much warmer, which reduces condensation. 

However, as condensation can appear on windows for a variety of reasons, it is essential to find out what the type is and what is causing the problem. In this article, we will discuss what you should look for when condensation occurs and how our double glazing products can help solve problems.

How To Spot Condensation?

Condensation is visible when there is a temperature difference between your windows and the home. This temperature difference causes condensation as the water vapour in the air hasn’t got anywhere to escape, so it hits your cold windows. The moisture will become water, which will appear as condensation on your windows. 

What Can You Do About It? 

Internal and external condensation will look different and will appear for various reasons. It’s helpful to do the following steps to help reduce your chances of getting condensation. 

Internal Condensation

Internal condensation can be avoided by doing the following steps:

  • Keeping the window open in the mornings or while you are cooking
  • Drying your clothes outside or with a window open 
  • Ventilate the bathroom after using the shower or bath
  • Keep heating at a low temperature

There are many other ways to reduce internal condensation, but by doing small steps, as mentioned above, you may notice less condensation. 

External Condensation

It’s more challenging to avoid external condensation, as environmental factors like internal condensation don’t cause it. The exterior glass of your window causes external condensation as it is a different temperature from the cold outside. This could be a good sign that your new double glazing windows are actually working well, as they are keeping your home warm. External condensation isn’t damaging the property, even though it may not look nice. If you do want to remove the condensation, you can use a dry cloth or wait for the sun to rise and touch the surface of your windows.
