Why is there condensation in my windows?
Condensation occurs in windows when the surface temperature of the window is cooler than the temperature in the room. In order for condensation to appear on the inside of the window the sealant between the glazing and the panels has to be broken or worn. This makes condensation in windows a common problem for older properties and windows that haven’t been manufactured to a high standard.
You can check if the sealant is the culprit for the condensation by running your finger along it. If you feel any splits or breakages, then the window will need to be replaced.
How do you remove condensation from the inside of windows?
The long and the short of it is once condensation has formed on the inside of your windows, it’s impossible to remove – condensation on the inside of windows is a sign that you need to get your windows replaced.
How do you prevent condensation from forming inside of windows?
If you’re working on a project that includes window replacement, don’t compromise on the quality of the windows that you install. Alimax is a leading manufacturer of aluminium windows – our reputation is built on quality – so you can be sure that our windows will last.
Once the new windows have been installed, make sure your client is aware of the effect of excess moisture in the air. Excess moisture in the air will condense on cool windows, which can lead to damp and mould.
Make sure there’s an extractor fan installed in the bathroom, and recommend that your client opens the windows every now and then to keep the property ventilated. For properties where moisture is a big problem, recommend that they install a dehumidifier.
