Frequently asked questions
This phenomenon is commonly observed in spring and autumn and is related to higher air humidity as well as greater temperature differences inside and outside. It is not an indication of a glass or window defect.
Window tightness can be improved by adjusting the catches on the window fitting. The adjustment points depend on the fitting type. Ask for assistance at the window sales point or directly from the manufacturer.
The frames can be easily cleaned with ordinary dishwashing liquid. However, you can achieve the best results with specialist window profile care products, available from PVC works manufacturers.
There is probably too much humidity in the room. Check the operation of gravity ventilation and ensure a supply of fresh air from outside, for instance through short, but intense ventilation or minimally opening the sash for a longer period of time. However, in the event of water condensation inside the sealed units, you need to consult our technical service, since it may be due to a loose glazing unit that requires replacement.
Do 5-chamber windows fog more than 3-chamber windows? The answer is no. The number of chambers is not directly correlated with window evaporation, but with its freezing and mechanical properties. In wintertime, condensation of water is caused by the pane’s low temperature. At the same time, due to low temperatures outside, residents do not ventilate their living space often enough, resulting in higher humidity inside. The low temperature of the pane/profile and the raised humidity result in the dew point being reached and water condensation.
Is your window sash bent? In PVC windows, the sash adopts the shape of the frame, so first check the frame. Small deformations on the sash are acceptable, provided that protection against wind and rainwater is maintained. The window should open and close with ease.
A "warm" window is a unit in which one of the panes is dusted with a heat-reflecting layer. Glass prepared in this way helps to maintain stable room temperature, thereby reducing heating costs. Warm window panes are a standard component of windows manufactured by MONOLIT.
If installation of the windows is planned for a later time, the protective foil should be removed three months at the latest from the date of receipt, and if the windows are installed right away – the foil should be removed within one month after installation.
