UPVC double glazing does not always solve underlying condensation problems. Water vapour is continually present in the atmosphere. In the home this natural water content is increased by normal living activities and of course breathing.
Here’s a few tips to help reduce condensation:
Keep internal doors to the kitchen and bathroom areas closed to prevent moist air travelling throughout the home grille.
The main reason why a double glazed sealed unit can mist up (or break down as it’s referred to in the trade) is due to premature failure of the perimeter seal. Other reasons including poor installation, severe weather conditions as well as some cleaning chemicals can have an effect on the double glazed unit over time.
The perimeter edge of the unit loses its integrity and lets in moisture. Initially it may only be visible when the sun shines directly on it and heats the moisture within drawing it upwards and appearing as condensation. Usually it will worsen over time.
The only simple cost effective answer is to replace the double glazed sealed units with new ones. Not the window frames themselves, just the glass.
Replacing one of your broken or misted sealed units or door panels is relatively easy, there’s no need to pay a windows specialist, you can DIY. There’s plenty of useful installation advice on various websites and YouTube videos.
