Condensation on windows explained

Condensation occurs naturally on windows. It doesn’t matter whether they are double or single glazed – it can happen whenever moist, warm air, meets a cold surface.

The physical process by which a gas or vapour changes into a liquid, condensation is common windows as they tend to be less well insulated than walls - particularly in cooler, damper months, they can be the coolest surfaces in a room.

Ventilation is key to control excessive moisture or humidity in a property and prevent condensation.  

Double glazing & condensation

Double glazing units feature two panes of glass – three in triple glazed units - spaced apart with a spacer bar and sealed with a primary and secondary sealant to form a single, airtight unit with an air or gas filled cavity in between.

The cavity is filled under vacuum conditions with either dehydrated air or an inert gas to improve insulation and prevent condensation within the unit. A transparent coating on one surface of the glass reflects heat back into the building, reducing heat loss through the window.

Surface condensation on double-glazed units occurs:

 

• On face 1 - if face temperature is significantly lower than the external air temperature

• On faces 2 and 3, inside the double-glazed unit - indicates that the cavity is no longer completely sealed. The window cavity’s desiccant is rapidly saturated, so  damp air entering via the damaged seal round the edge forms visibility-reducing condensation inside the unit.

• On face 4 – influenced by external climate; internal air temperature; humidity within the building; ventilation flow rate. Particularly common in bathrooms, kitchens or rooms with high humidity levels. Heating, ventilation and thermally insulating glass can help.

Condensation inside double glazed units cannot not be reversed, but Mr Misty misted double glazing reparsr can replace just the glass rather than the whole double glazed unit to resolve the issue.

When replacing misted glass in double glazed units, it makes sense to fit high performance insulating glass which can save energy and money.  We can advise on energy efficient glass solutions and ensure that your new double glazed window units include ‘warm-edge’ spacerbars made of extremely efficient insulating material to overcome thermal bridge issues in the corners and make your glazing even more efficient.
