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.

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."
