Reduced condensation. Condensation is that “crying look” that single glazed windows get. In humid New Zealand conditions, at lower internal temperatures there is a greater chance of condensation forming on the inside of the windows.This can be a serious problem, as it causes mould, mildew, and, in some cases, can also rot timber window frames. With a warmer home the chance of condensation forming on the windows reduces.
