When small gaps develop in the sealed unit, warmer air from inside the property gets into the space between the glass panes and causes condensation. Moisture forms as the warm air makes contact with the colder external glass pane, which means that you have a condensation issue. If this is happening fairly often it is probably time to upgrade your current windows.

If your Borehamwood property has single glazing, the switch to double glazed windows will see an immediate improvement in the warmth and insulation from outside sounds. You may also raise you home's value (should you opt to sell), by making the upgrade to double glazed windows.

Opening outwards or inwards, double glazed casement windows are hinged on one side only. This enables easier cleaning and also provides a good amount of airflow during the summer. They are also available in a tilt and turn design which adds an additional degree of security where required. The addition of a supplementary hinge enables tilt and turn windows to be opened to a limited degree. Enhanced security is the result, because to allow a cool breeze to enter the room, they can be locked securely into position when only partly open.

There are also options available for double glazing sash windows with a more traditional look to complement a period property in Borehamwood. These can be double hung, where both sashes can be opened, or single hung, where only one sash slides. The sash windows of the past were renowned for their poor energy efficiency, but this issue has been largely alleviated with contemporary double glazed designs, and when it comes to thermal losses, there is very little difference between sash and casement windows nowadays.
