Condensation is caused by a small hole occurring in the seal around the glass, enabling heated air from inside the house to get into the space between the glass panes. As the cooler external glass pane comes into contact with the heated air, moisture is formed as condensation. If this is a regular occurrence, especially in winter time, you can either have the sealed unit replaced, or get replacement double glazed windows.

Hinged on one side, double glazed casement windows can open inwards or outwards depending on the design. This permits easier cleaning and also provides plenty of airflow during the summer months. Casement windows can also be arranged into a tilt and turn design for added security. Enabling them to open a small amount, tilt and turn windows have an additional hinge. This adds extra security as they can be locked securely into position when only partially open to permit a fresh breeze to flow into the room.

To complement a period property in Castleford, there are also options for double glazed sash windows with a traditional look. These can be double hung, where both of the sashes can be opened, or single hung, where just one pane slides.

Installing Cat Flaps in Double Glazing

If you own a cat, you have possibly considered fitting a cat flap to your double glazing. This can be a wonderful way to give your cat the freedom to enter and exit the house as they wish, without you having to continuously open and shut the door for them.

It's important to note, however, that installing a cat flap in double glazing is not a do-it-yourself job. Specialised tools and equipment are required for this complex process. Unless you are experienced in this kind of work, it is best to hire a professional cat flap fitter.

Once you've selected a cat flap, a professional cat flap fitter should be contacted. They'll visit your home to assess the situation and measure the space for the cat flap. They can also advise you on the best type of cat flap for your needs, taking into account your specific requirements.

To preserve the double glazing unit's integrity and ensure the cat flap's proper installation, the cat flap fitter will order a new double-glazed unit with a hole cut out for the cat flap.

Upon delivery of the new double-glazed unit, the cat flap installer will return to your home in Castleford to install it. This process entails removing the old double-glazed unit and replacing it with the new one. The cat flap fitter then installs the cat flap in the hole cut into the double glazing unit.

To ensure your knowledge and confidence in operating the cat flap, the device fitter will test it to ensure its proper operation and demonstrate its usage and settings. (47902 - Cat Flaps in Double Glazing)
