What is Condensation?

All Products

Condensation is the water which results from the conversion of water vapour in the atmosphere.

The air which surrounds us in our homes always contains water vapour, which is usually invisible. A typical example is the steam cloud from a kettle, which rapidly becomes invisible – it has in fact been absorbed into the atmosphere.

The warmer the air, the more water vapour it can hold – but there is a limit to the amount it can hold for a given temperature. When that limit is reached, the air is said to be “saturated”. When saturated air comes into contact with a surface which is at a lower temperature than itself, the air is chilled at the point of contact and sheds its surplus water vapour on that surface – initially in the form of a mist and, if excessive, eventually in the form of droplets of moisture. An example of this is when a person breathes onto a mirror: condensation occurs because the exhaled air is saturated and its temperature is higher than that of the mirror (which is at room temperature).

    What Our Clients Say!

    I would just like to convey my gratitude to Wright Windows and their excellent team on a job well done. Firstly I would like to thank John Mulholland, who must have the patience of a saint as I did change my mind about three times, as I do admit to have been fussy and pedant about the whole project. On that note it brings me to the installation team Austin and Max, first class professionals in their trade. I really wasn’t looking forward to the job, the mess and the problems that I thought would be there. However, the lads did an excellent job, no mess and not one cracked or broken tile, and made easy work of a complicated job. They were professional, courteous and were very particular in finishing every little detail to the highest standard. Thanks to the lads I have no hesitation in recommending this company to anybody.

    I would just like to say that we continue to be more than impressed with the service from your company. Further to my e-mail below, I immediately got a call from Donal who said he would send someone to see our windows. He was very thorough and helpful with his follow up ensuring that it was a time that suited us. One of your team came to the house last week (I don’t know his name unfortunately) and he looked at the window, resealed it and did a tidy up job on most of the windows in the house. Customer care like this is exceptional and to get it 3 years after the project is very impressive.

    I just wanted to pass on my gratitude at the fantastic work that your fitters did on a porch that was recently fitted in my home in Butterstream Manor, Trim. The quality of the work is amazing and I will certainly be recommending your company to family and friends.

    Just a short email to thank your company for the really professional job you did in replacing 11 windows and a patio door in my house over the past two days. The experience has been really positive -from the team who measured up to the team who installed. Nothing was a problem -the price was competitive -the advice and service professional -and the end result is fully meeting our expectations. Please convey our thanks to all involved and I have no hesitation in recommending your company to any of my friends.

    Just a short note to let you know your company has just finished replacing my windows (16 no) and rear door (1 no) today. I would like to thank you for the absolutely brilliant service from John Mulholland and the two lads Austin and Max who installed the windows/door.

    A sincere thank you for looking after us so well. We are thrilled with our new windows and can’t fault their installation; Frank and his colleague Declan were terrific. So, a big thank you to all, Maurice.
