Condensation on inside of new double glazed windows

Best Answer

This is because your windows are actually working. Before moisture in the air around your home must have been escaping through your old windows (draughty or not totally air tight) now that your new windows are fully air tight the moisture in the air can't go anywhere, once it hits the cold glass it turns in to liquid form this showing condensation
You can fit vents on your windows to reduce this. Also a handy tip is not to dry clothes too much in your home as this creates moisture in the air.

Cold window, then warm damp air will cause is problem, the key is ventilation. Do you dry your washing indoors? Do you have an extractor fan in your bathroom? All of these things can have an effect. Other than running a dehumidifier constantly or having air flow you wont get rid. Trickle vents are the secret within modern windows

This is a common problem, its usually down to lack of sufficient ventilation. If your windows don't have a trickle vent on them they can be fitted. This is probably the easiest and cheapest way to increase ventilation.

I hope this helps.
