Why Do I Get A Build Up Of Condensation
The main reason that you are starting to get condensation in between the two panes of glass is due to the seal on your windows being broken. Unfortunately, there is no quick way to fix this issue. As the seal has been broken air is going to seep into the unit and cause a build up of condensation.
How To Prevent Condensation
There are a few ways in which you can prevent condensation, however, if the seal has been broken on your double glazed windows then these are going to have to be replaced.
Open Your Windows
A good tip to prevent condensation is to open your windows up, providing it isn’t a cold day. This will help to release the warm moisture that is being confined in your home.
Increase The Temperature
If you increase the temperature in your home this will reduce the amount of condensation that will build up upon your windows. This is mainly because condensation happens when the warm air inside your house hits a cold surface (Your window)
Purchase A Dehumidifier
You could also invest in a dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers are relatively cheap to buy and run depending on the size. These work by withdrawing the moisture that is in the air and collecting it in a tank. These are great for older homes that may not have any cavity wall insulation.
Give Your Windows A Clean
If you think that you have a build up of condensation between your two panes of glass a good tip would be to give them a good clean. Not only is it the perfect time to do so as it may be the last time you do it before the winter season rolls on through. It is important to clean your windows as the what you may think is condensation could actually be grease, or household cleaning supplies that have not been used properly.
