Window Condensation

Windows and doors are very important additions to any household. For starters, they allow natural light inside and properly ventilate homes.

Without them, a house will never be efficient and liveable. For that very reason, most homeowners quickly assume that a small incident like window sweating is already a sign of leakage and that they need to call for a contractor immediately. In most cases, that is not what it is. Here are some reasons why your windows are sweating.

Window Condensation

A leakage on your replacement windows can be quite alarming; however, before replacing them,

make sure that it is not just window condensation. When warm moist air comes into contact with a cooler surface, moisture will form on the surface, and it is called window condensation. It is common and can happen in any household because moisture can come from anywhere since vapor pressure can force it through plaster, wood, brick and cement. Surprisingly, everyday living activities like cooking and showering can produce moisture.

What Should I do?

First of all, if you do not mind the look of a sweating window, then it’s best to leave it as it is. Window condensation is not a bad thing after all. It even proves that your windows have good tight seals and are energy-efficient.

However, if you prefer having a clear view all day round, what you should do is reduce the humidity in your home. Be sure to vent all your gas appliances like clothes dryers and exhaust fans outside. Moreover, your attic should have proper ventilation, and vapor barriers should be installed in your crawl space. Lastly, start running exhaust fans while doing daily activities that produce moisture.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
