Why do I sometimes get condensation on the outside of my new double glazing?
Firstly, we need to say that the appearance of external condensation is not a fault with the glass or windows – it is simply your new ‘A’ rated double glazing doing its job: keeping the cold outside.
This means that the external temperature is colder than the gas inside your double glazed unit, which in turn is cooler than the temperature inside your home. This causes the condensation on the outside pane of glass. It happens more often in Spring and Autumn.
Once the outside temperature becomes the same as the gas inside the double glazing, the condensation will disappear.
Will I get condensation on my internal windows?
Condensation or misting inside the room may be a result of a failed or broken unit, but it is more likely to be the humidity or moisture content of the air in the room – especially kitchens and bathrooms.
Bottled gas and paraffin heaters produce a lot of moisture, and even breathing lets enough moisture into an unventilated room to cause condensation to form. So, increasing the ventilation, such as locking open the window on the night vent, or leaving the door ajar will help to control this problem.
