Window condensation doesn’t necessarily happen all the time to windows, but when it does happen it leaves some homeowners wondering what’s wrong.
Condensation, which is really small water droplets that collect on a surface, can build up either inside or outside your home on your windows. The cause is air humidity; when this warm, moist air comes in contact with a colder surface (your windows), water droplets form.
How Can I Reduce Window Condensation?
- Always be sure to use fans to circulate air throughout your home. Bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms that have windows will see the most condensation.
- Keep your basement and attic well ventilated as well. Condensation that is left on window surfaces can often amount to another problem — mold.
- Open both windows and blinds to further improve air flow. The sunlight can also help you remove the moisture collected in windows.
Another great option would be to make sure that your windows are well insulated and properly fitted to their frames. Without properly fitted windows, you risk the chance of letting moisture inside your home and collecting on the glass.
