dual GLAZE™ double glazing saves you a lot of time previously spent mopping up wet windows.

Condensating windows, if not wiped down often can be a serious problem and lead to mould that is unhealthy and in some cases, can also damage paint surfaces and rot timber window frames. dual GLAZE™ reduces the risk of condensation forming on the window resulting in drier windows with less mould and mildew.

It’s important to note that the average home releases around 8 litres of water a day into the air, from activities such as cooking, showering, clothes-drying, indoor plants and even breathing. In conjunction with the installation of dual GLAZE™, installing an active or passive ventilation system will achieve an even drier home.
Reducing condensation
  • As condensation is created by household activities, simply installing new windows will not reduce the amount of moisture in your home. There are a variety of methods to help minimise the chance of condensation.
1. Ventilation
  • Ventilation can help make your home drier, healthier and more comfortable. Keeping windows open, even a small amount for some of the daytime, can help reduce condensation.
  • Some window types allow you to lock your windows and still have ongoing passive ventilation.
    Ventilation is especially important in newer homes, because they tend to be more airtight, with less natural air flow.
  • When cooking, drying laundry, or showering, make sure you let the water vapour escape outside. You can do this by opening windows or vents, or turning on a ventilation fan, or of course using a ducted clothes dryer.
  • There are several types of domestic ventilation system available (known as HVAC systems) that replace the moisture-laden air in your home with drier air from outside. Some systems have built-in electric heaters that can also warm your home.
2. Dehumidifiers
  • Dehumidifiers are useful as their sole purpose is to reduce moisture in the air. A dehumidifier draws in the moisture-laden air from around the room, extract the water and deposit it into an inbuilt container for later disposal.

3. Double glazed windows

  • Double glazing helps keep the surface of the inside glass warmer and so reduces the likelihood of condensation forming on windows. Remember that moisture is still present.

4. Thermally-efficient window frames
  • Like double glazing, thermally-efficient window frames help prevent the transfer of heat energy through window frames and therefore help reduce the incidence of condensation on windows. Thermally efficient window frames should only be used with double glazing.
