There's condensation in the glass door panels

Glass panels in exterior doors are an excellent way to let light into your home, which is why it can be disappointing when one starts to mist or show condensation. Anglian windows are all doubled or triple glazed sealed units filled with argon gas to prevent this from happening, but occasionally a fault can occur with the sealing that allows condensation to form.

Inside the panels

If you're noticing condensation inside the glass panels, get in touch with Anglian today to arrange for an engineer to address the problem. The condensation may have occurred due to a fault in the seal, or if the window panels are particularly old. Older window panels can lose their seals, but are easily replaced to prevent the problem from recurring.

Outer panels

Condensation can also occur on the outer glass panels. If this occurs on the pane of glass inside your home, fortunately, this doesn't have anything to do with the seal of your windows, and can be solved with a little ventilation. Simply make sure more air is circulated around your home to help prevent condensation from forming.

Condensation can form the external pane too. This is actually a sign that the window is very energy efficient as little heat is transferring through the panes of glass to the external pane.

For more information on condensation on your windows, take a look at our guide to preventing it. If you feel your door has been poorly fitted it may be that your door supplier did not comply with industry standards. At Anglian, every door is made to measure and meets or exceeds all industry standards.
