Our bespoke secondary glazing can stop a lot of issues around windows in historic properties – cutting out draughts and noise and making a space as comfortable as possible. It can also help to reduce condensation, but what it can’t do is stop condensation altogether.
Condensation forms part of the environment of a period property; the properties have been designed to breathe moisture in and let it out and it differs according to the location.
Farm and countryside settings have far more moisture in the air, for instance, while in the town there will be less moisture.
Man-made factors are also key to moisture in a property. Things like showers, running hot water and tumble driers can all increase the moisture in the air.
In the past, homes often had ranges on all day, which kept the house at an even temperature. If the temperature remains steady and even, the air is able to hold moisture, but when the temperature drops, moisture from the air will fall into the coldest surface, often the windows.
Nowadays, with central heating and people being in and out, temperatures within a property can fluctuate much more.
If you have issues with condensation, there are steps you can take to reduce the impact.
Have a look at our fact sheet which will give you a breakdown of the causes of condensation and some tips on what you can do to tackle it.
