Double Glazing Condensation: How to fix it

Double Glazing Condensation: How to fix it

Double glazed windows have been used for many years as a cost effective way of insulating buildings and increasing energy efficiency and security. But we all know too well the annoying sight of water droplets and condensation building up between the panes of glass and how impossible it feels to get rid of.

Why does condensation form in double glazed windows?

Condensation is the result of a difference in temperature between the outside – which is usually colder – and the inside – which is warmer – surfaces of the glazed window. Condensation occurs when vapour is cooled to a certain temperature – resulting in water droplets appearing.

The cavities between the panes of glass are usually sealed to the window frame using a rubber seal which prevents air escaping.
