CONDENSATION: WHAT IS IT AND HOW CAN I REDUCE IT?

 

condensation

If you are constantly having to wipe condensation off your windows then it’s time to take action.
Condensation on windows and in conservatories can damage paintwork, wall coverings and window fittings.  If left, it can lead to mould growth, potentially causing serious health issues.
But what is it? And what can you do to reduce condensation within your property?

WHAT IS CONDENSATION?

Condensation forms when there is a difference in temperature between inside and outside the property.
There are a variety of places that water vapour comes from within your home.
The most common is from breathing – two sleeping adults produce approximately 1 litre of moisture in 8 hours.
Water vapour is also created from cooking, wet clothes and heaters. This water vapour enters the atomsphere and then condenses into water droplets on the surface of your windows.

how can I reduce it?

DOUBLE OR TRIPLE GLAZING

Double or Triple glazing is designed to reduce the loss of heat by conduction from the inside to the outside of the building – acting as an insulator.
By installing double or triple glazed windows the temperature of the surfaces inside the property are at a higher level and therefore reduces the risk of condensation.
 Double or triple glazed units contain energy efficient low-emission glass that have enhanced thermal insulation properties thanks to a high performance transparent coating that reflects heat from radiators or fires back into the room. As a result, the outer pane of glass does not get warmed by heat escaping from inside and remains cooler than less thermally efficient windows.
If you find that there is condensation within the cavity of the double glazed window then there is most likely a failure in the seal. We offer a Service Call if you want to get this checked. 

VENTILATION

When it comes to reducing condensation, it’s about more than just glazing.
Ensuring you have adequate ventilation in your property is the easiest way to keep humidity low. Areas such as the bathroom and kitchen are the key rooms to ensure ventilation. When cooking, boiling the kettle or taking a hot shower  the humidity of the room rises, creating condensation. Try opening a window or using an extractor fan.
Leaving a gap between furniture and your walls also allows for air to circulate the room better. You should also take care to not overfill cupboards and wardrobes which also allows air to move freely and prevents clothes from feeling damp.
Your washing machine and tumble dryer are also major contributions to condensation if not vented properly. Two litres of water is emitted into the air from just one load of washing.

Toughened glass is available in 4mm-10mm and is processed by controlled thermal treatments to increase its strength compared to normal glass. 
When broken, Toughened glass breaks into small, relatively harmless pieces of glass which minimise the risk of injury.

They reflect invisible rays but allow a maximum amount of visible solar rays which brightly light your room without the extreme heat of the summer.

WORRIED ABOUT SECURITY? HERE’S HOW YOU CAN KEEP YOUR HOME SAFE

 

WORRIED ABOUT SECURITY? HERE’S HOW YOU CAN KEEP YOUR HOME SAFE:

One of the biggest fears for homeowners this year is security and having their home broken into. But this isn’t surprising considering that 76% of all burglaries were through a poorly secured door. As well as 31% that were entered by forcing a lock. So what can we do to protect ourselves against burglaries? 
 The British Standard 3 Star Maximum Cylinder Security from ERA is the lock we recommend here at Select Windows. The lock has been independently tested to meet the latest industry security standards. This offers maximum protection and peace of mind.
 The high performance lock contains six hardened high security pins which means it is the ultimate defence against snapping, bumping and picking. These sections of the lock prevent intruders from accessing the inner workings of the lock as well as protecting from intruders drilling through the keyhole.
At Select Windows we believe you should always feel safe in your own home. That’s why we pride ourselves on our attention to security on all of our products.
We offer a range of extra security features such as locking systems, reinforced hinges and child safety mechanisms. We ensure that you can relax in the knowledge that you are safe.
Our products are accredited by Secured by Design, a police backed initiative awarded to products with security features as their main priority.

ANTI – SNAP

Two sacrificial sections means if the Fortress cylinder is snapped, the two front sections will break off, preventing the intruder from getting access to the inner workings of  the lock giving superb Anti-Snap protection.

ANTI – PICK & ANTI – BUMP

With six trap pins and over 98,000 differs, Bumping the pins or Picking the lock becomes time consuming and therefore redundant. Giving you a cylinder with the very best Anti – Bump and Anti-Pick protection.

ANTI – DRILL

The use of hardened pins protect from an intruder drilling through the keyhole to access the lock. Multiple pins prevent a drill bit penetrating the lock, for maximum Anti-Drill protection.

FREE DOOR UPGRADE FOR BURGLED WALSALL PENSIONER

 

FREE DOOR UPGRADE FOR BURGLED WALSALL PENSIONER




After Edgar Merrick, 86 and his wife Beryl, 84 were burgled in their home in Walsall, Select Windows fitted their new windows. After meeting the shook up couple, it was then offered by the company to upgrade their front door for more security. 
 The Brookhurst Crescent house was broken into via the back bedroom window, whilst Edgar and his wife were downstairs. On hearing a noise, he headed upstairs where he was forced to the ground by the burglar, who then ran off with a bracelet. Edgar, who has been married to his wife for 63 years, shouted Beryl to call the police.
Needing their window replacing, the couple phoned Select Windows. Chris Wood, the Sales Manager says they went out straight away to the couple; “As we were installing his rear bedroom window, where the burglars got in we felt that his front door was also at risk. We upgraded it to a front composite door for the added security for him and his wife, as they were both shook up.”
Edgar and Beryl were very grateful for the work, he said “It was really nice of them and the door is lovely.”
