The replacement windows we supply at Rationel Windows and Doors Ireland are high in quality and built to last, but even they need some help when dealing with all of the elements of the Irish weather. In order for our alu clad windows to operate at their very best, there are certain things you’ll need to do to minimise the build-up of condensation during the Winter by providing enough circulation of air through your home.

Let’s have a look at what you need to know…

Keep the Air Circulation Going
When Winter arrives, damp can occur in unventilated rooms, even when our top-quality alu clad windows are installed. This is especially the case in rooms that have a lower average temperature like bedrooms, so ensuring that you open windows to let the air through on a regular basis is a must.

Clean Your Outlets & Trickle Vents
Another tip for keeping ventilation levels up with Rationel double-glazed windows is to keep your trickle vents and outlets free of debris. An annual cleaning is usually sufficient to remove any cobwebs, dust or dead leaves that might have accumulated. Our windows have trickle vents that are protected with insect mesh, but they’ll still need cleaning out from time to time.

Maintain a Consistent, Comfortable Temperature
What often happens during the Winter is that temperatures can fluctuate from hot to cold much more often than they do during the Summer. This can lead to condensation when the temperature inside increases, so when it’s cold outside, it’s more important than ever to ventilate. If you are able to maintain a temperature of around 20-21 degrees, this makes your job that much easier.
