    I have a wood velux roof window which is not accessible without a ladder as it faces down onto the landing.

    it is gathering a lot of condensation from the Bathroom below and a new bathroom fan hasn’t reduced the condensation at the bottom of the window.

    I want to know if I can retrofit a trickle vent at the bottom of the velux window. Is this possible or is a replacement velux (or alternative) with a trickle vent the better option.

    All velux windows come with a trickle vent.

    That's what I thought, just pulling the bar down one click opens the trickle vent I thought?

    It’s an old one which is located far away but I didn’t know about the one click thing. I’ll try it in the morning and see.
    Thanks
