    Should I Install Trickle Vents?

    Window Specialists

    I had new windows fitted 5 years ago without trickle vents. Can I get these fitted retrospectively? Will it solve a minor condensation problem?

    Yes trickle vents can be fitted afterwards depending on the type of windows installed, this may stop some condensation, but you will then constantly have a draught. If you open the window a small amount at night this should help. Are the glass units A rated? There maybe other ways to solve this but I will need more information and photos.

    "It is a regulation to fit trickle vents, it should be possible to fit new ones and this should help with minor condensation problems.
    Thanks, Brian"
