When small gaps develop in the seal around the glass, warmer air from inside the house enters into the gap between the panes and causes condensation. As the colder exterior pane of glass comes into contact with the warm air, moisture droplets form as condensation. If this is happening regularly the time may have come to change your current windows.

If your Otley property currently has single glazing, the switch to double glazed units will see immediate improvements in the warmth and soundproofing. The upgrade to double glazed windows can also help to boost the value of your home should you choose to sell.


To obtain double glazed windows that satisfy your choice of style and match your home, you can hire an experienced double glazing fitter in the Otley area. Double glazing units can be found in a wide range of sizes, materials and colours, to match contemporary casement windows and patio doors to traditional sash windows for older homes.

Opening outwards or inwards, double glazing casement windows are hinged on one side only. This delivers plenty of airflow in the summer months and enables easier cleaning. They're also available in a tilt and turn arrangement which adds an extra degree of security where necessary. Tilt and turn windows have a supplementary hinge to be able to open slightly. Enhanced security results, because to allow a cool breeze to flow into the room, they can be locked in position when partially open.

To complement a period home in Otley, there are also options available for double glazing sash windows with a traditional look. There are double hung versions where both of the sashes can be moved, and single hung designs where just one pane slides. In the past sash windows were not noted for being energy efficient, but contemporary double glazing designs have lessened this issue and now there's pretty much nothing between sash windows and casement windows when it comes to thermal losses.

A further plus point is having the opportunity to install a window seat, if a deep sill exists on the interior side of the window.
