Just wondering if internal condensation is possible in triple glazed windows since the the coldest point of a triple glazed windows is its litter pane.

Hope someone can answer this question.

PS. I know triple glazed windows suffer from condensation in the outside pane.

The reason why I ask is the following.

I had the glazing replaced in the 20 years old DG and also had a TG new window fitted in a garage conversion. I now suffer condensation in the DG but no signs of it in the TG. There is outside condensation in the TG but nothing inside. As opposite the DG get quite a bit of condensation in the inside pains.

I am now thinking that the DG frame are sh*te and should have replaced them at the time instead of replacing just the glazing.

I read that condensation only forms in the coldest point of an insulated surface and in TG this being the outside pain I thought that was the reason why they wouldn’t get condensation in the inside. Is this correct?

If the windows are colder than air temp you will get condensation, inside or out.
