Sophiep’s Take on Things….
At the event shows that FAS Windows & Doors attends, the event marketing team often gets questions concerning condensation on their windows. What is condensation and how does it come about? The answer is easy – high humidity. Excess or high humidity in the air causes condensation on your windows. When water vapor meets with a cooler surface, the vapor turns into moisture that appears on the glass.
Scary fact according to the Window and Door Manufacturers Association
, normal breathing and perspiration by a family of four can add a half pint of water to the air at home every hour. A poorly insulated house will allow humidity to enter the house more so. The answer to this condensation is replacing your windows with energy efficient windows
. The temperature of the glass helps reduce condensation buildup if you have Low-E or argon gas or krypton gas. However, it will not prevent the buildup.
A few tips to lower condensation is ventilation from fans in all rooms to spread out the air, use a dehumidifier and crack open your windows!
