    Cling film double glazing and condensation 14th Sep 08 at 11:54 PM
    Hi everyone

    Wonder if anyone can help. Looking to get some of the 'cling film' type double glazing from Wilkinsons and use it across 3 of the the four panels of our casement bedroom windows (single glazed) and leave the small 4th panel uncovered so that we can open the window to keep the rooms ventilated during the day

    I hope this doesn't sound daft but does condensation still appear on windows that have this cling film double glazing on them?

    When we rented a few years ago they had 'proper' secondary double glazing fitted but again the outer windows were always covered in condensation in a morning if now window open at night - but of course you just slid open the glass panel and could wipe it all away.

    In our current house we also have terrible condensation on colder nights if the window isn't kept open and am worried that with the cling film obviously I wouldn't be able to wipe away the condensation and it would just be running into wooden frames all winter.

    Also - does the film double glazing reduce outside noise in anway?

    Thank you
