Window condensation – what causes it and how to reduce it.

What causes condensation?

Condensation forms when warm or humid air contacts a cold surface. Moisture is in the air all around us and warmer air can hold more moisture. When the air around us cools it contracts and condenses,  and when the temperature drops, the first place you will see any condensation is on the windows.

Winters coming! It’s time to check your sash windows!

Here are the signs you need to be looking for when checking your sash windows. Remember, keeping your sash windows in good condition saves you money on bills, helps the environment, adds value to your property and protects you and your home!

All properties lose heat through their windows, but energy-efficient glazing keeps your home warmer and quieter as well as reducing your energy bills. That could mean double or in some cases triple-glazing for new buildings.
