Condensation is caused by a small hole developing in the seal around the glass, enabling warm air from inside the home to get into the space between the panes. As the cooler outside glass pane makes contact with the heated air, moisture is formed as condensation. It may be time to change your existing windows, if this is occurring fairly often.

An immediate improvement in the warmth and insulation from outside sounds will be seen if your home in Earl Shilton has windows with single glazing and you switch to double glazed windows. Making the upgrade to double glazing may also help to increase you home's value if you opt to sell.

Because they can be locked securely in position when partly open to allow for a cool breeze to flow into the room, the security is increased.
