4 Ways to Address Window Condensation During Winter

Window condensation is a common problem many homeowners face during the winter months. It happens due to the extreme differences between indoor and outdoor temperatures. If not addressed right away, it can lead to mold growth around the unit and distortion of the window’s frame finish.

Window Condensation During Winter

Adding ventilation can solve the issue of winter window condensation. Here are some of the things you can do:

1. Open Your Windows

Opening your windows is a great way to solve your moisture problem in your home. You don’t have to keep them open for a long time; five minutes is enough to introduce fresh air and take out warm, moist air that is trapped inside your home.

2. Utilize Exhaust Fans

Excess moisture in your home is produced in your kitchen and bathroom. To prevent the windows in these areas from fogging up, make sure the exhaust fans are turned on, especially if you are cooking food or taking a shower or bath.

3. Adjust the Humidifier

Humidifiers help regulate indoor humidity levels in your home. They are either standalone systems or can be integrated into existing HVAC units. If you have one, be sure to turn it down so it will release less moisture in the indoor air and reduce some condensation.

4. Invest in Better Windows

If you are planning to replace your old, inefficient window units, choose those with higher R-values. These replacement windows can handle humidity better and keep condensation from forming.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
