Condensation on Acoustic Glazing

Postby steveodg9 » Tue Dec 22, 2009 8:07 pm

We recently had acoustic (triple) glazing fitted but now winter is here if you have the heating on high enough to make the room comfortably warm the windows in the morning are streaming with condensation, not between the panes but on the inside.

We enquired as to the installation of a trickle vent but were told that 1. this would invalidate the acoustic guarantee and 2. we'd here a lot of road noise.

With constantly wet window ledges and damp curtains, what is wrong or what is the likely solution.

Many thanks.

Simply Build It

The water which is condensing on the inside of the windows must be coming from somewhere.

Is this problem only with one room or the entire house? Do you have a shower iin a room which is not properly ventilated? Does the house have any problem with damp?
