Getting Rid of Condensation on the Inside of Windows
It happens to all of us: You look up and see little droplets of condensation forming on the inside of your windows. It’s an annoyance that disrupts your view, but fortunately, it’s a very common problem and there are several steps you can take to help get rid of this issue.
What Causes Condensation on Your Windows?
First, it helps to understand what causes condensation to form on the inside of windows. This occurs when warm, moist air encounters the cold surface of the window glass. This is why condensation inside your windows is most common in the wintertime, as it’s warm and comfortable inside, but your window glass may be cold due to the outdoor temperatures.
How to Prevent Condensation Inside Your Windows
To help prevent condensation from occurring, there are a few steps you can take. These include:
- Turning down your humidifier or using a dehumidifier
- Using bathroom vent fans while taking a shower
- Using kitchen vent fans while cooking
- Turning on ceiling fans to increase air circulation
- Opening the windows to help moist air escape
If you’re still experiencing issues with condensation on the inside of your windows, it may be a sign that it’s time to invest in new windows. Opting for insulated windows with multiple panes of glass can also help prevent the interior glass pane from being significantly colder than your indoor temperatures.
