FORMING OF CONDENSATION ON THE SURFACE OF DOUBLE GLAZING AND WINDOW FRAMES ON THE INSIDE OF THE ROOM
Generally, condensation may appear on the inside of the room on the window glazing, especially the window frames. This is also known as sweating or fogging of the window. However, this is not to be confused with the appearance of condensation inside the window glazing. When the condensation forms between the two pieces of glass inside the glazing it is faulty and you must contact a specialized service company for intervention.
Watervapourisconstantlyreleased in living premises and the following quantities may be assumed:
- air breathed out by a human: daily quantity 1 to 2 liters
- cooking: up to 2 liters daily for a family of four
- taking a shower, washing up, doing the laundry, etc. – up to 3 liters daily for a family of four
The condensation starts to form from the edge of the glass in the coldest part of the home. Wide window sills, as well as the wing frame, may obstruct the air flow meaning that the moisture at the lower end of the glass may appear earlier than in the middle.
Condensation may appear in unheated premises. The reason for this is the gradual cooling of the room during the night and the saturation of the air with water vapor from breathing at relatively low temperatures.
Condensation may form not only on windows but also at all cold places in the room. This results in the formation of spots of mildew and moldon the walls. By observing some specific rules condensation may be reduced or disappear.
- 1. The premises where condensation forms should be aired more. However, this must not be done by airing for a long time such as leaving windows opened on the flap.
- 2. Airing by opening the window wide saves energy and prevents the formation of condensation and mold. The windows should be opened wide for about 5-10 minutes so that the air saturated with water vapor is replaced by new colder air. This must be done three to four times a day.
- 3.Rooms with northern exposure must be paid particular attention as they are cooled faster than southern exposure ones in the winter. It is good to maintain a temperature around 17-18 degrees.
- 4. Maintain the lowest possible temperature differences between the different rooms at home.
- 5. It is recommended to air the premises for at least 20 minutes in the morning and to ensure constant heating after opening the windows.
- 6. Avoidance of condensation may be also done through a change of the hot air flow.
- 7. Not having a heating unit the creates a favorable situation for the formation of condensation and mould.
- 8. If possible, avoid switching the heating on and off and maintain relatively identical temperatures throughout the day.
GARAGE DOORS AND ROLLING SECURITY SHUTTERS
IN CASE OF POWER CUT
Automatic doors are provided with an emergency opening mode. It is activated by a handle at the end of the core if there is a separate pedestrian entrance to the premises. To release the motor brake, unwind the two parts of the handle to harden the core. Then the door will open and close manually. Upon returning the handle to the normal position, the locking of the motor is reactivated and the door is reliably closed. Upon resumption of the power supply, the automatic mode continues its normal operation.
For doors without another entrance except through the garage door, the emergency core is taken out in front of the garage door and locked in a special armored box. Upon opening the box cover you have access to the mechanism for drawing out the core and stopping it, thus ensuring the opening of the door. By closing the box cover, the core returns the motor and the door back to locked position.
THE DOOR IS SHAKING UPON REACHING CLOSED POSITION
The emergency mode has been activated. You need to return the handle to its normal position.
THE DOOR DOES NOT REACT TO THE COMMANDS OF THE REMOTE CONTROL
If the LED of the receiver is not working, this means low or wrongly fitted battery and you need to fit it into its bed or replace it. If the LED of the remote control shows an indication – check the power supply of the control block.
