Why do triple glazed windows mist up?
When the glass temperature falls below the dew point temperature condensation occurs. This condensation will not evaporate until the glass is heated by wind, sunlight or heat transfer from inside your house. Our triple glazed windows will suffer external condensation, as they are very thermally efficient!
