PVC Windows condensation

As the winter comes, bringing the first lower temperatures, there is often a problem with condensation and moisture on brand new PVC windows, especially on the glass itself, and later effect is that it becomes moldy and fungi all around, which people often band together pvc-windowunfairly with the process of instalation of those PVC windows. Main arguments for such claims is that there were not any of those unpleasant appearances before instalation of PVC windows, while there were just good old wooden joinery. However, the problem of condensation is far more complicated because a few square meters of glass could not anyhow influent the energy efficiency or indoor air humidity, which is the main cause of condensation appearance on window glasses.
There are a few every day examples from life that can clarify this phenomenon, such as glass spectacles, which gets befoged instantly when you enter the warm room after walking outside on the winter day, or the condensation of the windshield in your 1276570394636_hz-fileserver1_2844151car when seeral persons enters it after being parked outside on a cold weather.

In old construction projects, humidity was very rarely appearanced, and there were no such problems as condensation and moisture.

That is because humidity in living rooms was formed in conditions where joint sealing of wooden joinery allowedpvc-windows
more air circulation that nowdays, when construction materials were wood, calx, reed, clay etc. which also allowed more air exchange between interior and outside, and the loss of heat was compensated with more heating, so the air circulation becomes even more intense, but all of this was leading to large heating costs. Nowday modern objects tend to be build so the max thermal insulation is achieved, so we have a greenhouse effect in our own home. So, many people wonders on how to solve the problem of condensation in their home.
