Avoid Condensation on your UPVC windows

Condensation building up on during winters on your double glazing windows is a common problem for many households. Condensation droplets can also be seen on single glazing windows causing a menace of cleaning for the homeowners. Do not worry; you are not alone if your windows too have droplets of water, particularly in winter season.

Older styles of windows have evolved into great looking windows and doors made from UPVC material but the problem of moisture building up on the glass prevails. The latest and improved models of the UPVC windows are not spared from condensation droplets.

Now you can avoid these tiny water droplets on your windows. You can simply cut down the source of moisture in your homes so that condensation does not take place. You can put your linen and clothes to dry up outside your homes such as in your garden, balcony or patio. If you boil, cook or fry foods for longer duration than usual in your home, always use lids to cover them up. In addition, you should leave a window open or doors ajar, specially rooms that are most affected.

Besides these domestic measures, you can also purchase some products such as dehumidifiers or fans that can pull moisture out of your home and alleviate the problem of condensation droplets on the windows. Extractor fans are good alternatives of de-humidifers as they can easily solve your problem at an affordable cost. Disposable products like moisture salts can also be used for solving this issue.

The main solution to the problem is a proper ventilation system. There are several new UPVC windows available in the market. They come with pre-fitted trickle vents. These are helpful for maintaining good ventilation inside the home. If you also have an attic, make sure that all insulation is at a minimum distance of 15 cm from the gables and roof corners.
