Owners of new PVC windows are faced with problems such as fogging, freezing and the appearance of condensate. The question arises, how to make the window in the winter is not covered with ice and does not blame. And if the appearance of frostbite or condensate at the junction of a double -glazed window with a frame is nothing wrong, then with their occurrence on the slopes you must definitely understand.
The correct installation and purchase of original branded double -glazed windows will relieve freezing and fogging windows.
Causes of frosty and condensate:
• Very cold outer wall of the house. This is especially true for panel houses of the 70-90s of construction. Even the warmest double -glazed windows will not be able to solve the problem. You can get rid of unpleasant phenomena only by placing a heater near the window. Thanks to him, heat transfer is practically normal and the window is thawed.
• Violation of ventilation. In many houses, including old panel and new buildings, there are violations in the air exchange. These problems are manifested after the installation of plastic windows in the form of frost in winter and fogging. The installation of proper heat transfer is facilitated by the size of the window sill – it should not overlap more than half of the battery. Ventilation will help to remove moisture, which can be provided by opening the window for 10-15 minutes or by installing the ventilation valve above the double-glazed window. He will help to forget about problems such as condensate and frost, while it costs quite inexpensively.
• Subtle PVC window. Understand that the reason is this, you can put the thermometer on the windowsill. If the temperature has not risen above 10 degrees, then the problem is due to the window. It is probably too thin and it is better to change the double -glazed window. For the Russian climate, it is recommended to install a two -chamber double -glazed window consisting of three glasses.
• Installation errors. A warm window on which frost and condensate appear, most likely, which led to the freezing of the mounting seam. It is necessary to contact those who carried out installation. By law, the installers are required to completely eliminate the mistakes made for free.
If ice is detected on the window, it is necessary to remove it carefully with a scrap. Then wipe all the moisture with a rag and ventilate the room. You can leave a soft fabric on the windowsill at night. After that, be sure to call the organization that set the window and call the master.
It must be remembered that there will be no problems with the windows if the temperature remains at a level of at least 18 degrees in any frost on the street.
