Prevent Condensation on Your Windows This Winter

Jan 05, 2017

Are your windows sweating, even in the winter? It’s not the window’s fault.

Window condensation occurs when the water vapor in the air contacts a surface that has a temperature below the dew point—like your bathroom mirrors after a hot shower.

In the winter, the humidity inside your home can become too high and cause condensation on the windows. The moisture collects most often along the bottom and sides of your windows. It’s a sign you have too much moisture in your home, not a problem with your windows.

Here are a few ways to prevent the build-up of condensation on the interior of your windows:

  • Run the exhaust fan in your bathroom and kitchen.
  • Open the curtains and blinds on your windows to allow more air to circulate. Heavy window treatments, in particular, trap moisture on your windows.
  • Store firewood outdoors. In addition to the safety hazard that firewood presents when kept inside, unseasoned wood (not fully dried) contains up to 45% water. Even seasoned wood can have up to 25% moisture content. In a warm home, this moisture is released into the air.
  • Use a dehumidifier in areas where the moisture build-up is heaviest.
  • Vent the windows a bit. Just like in a crowded car, the windows in your home will fog up with when you have a lot of people in your home.

"A portion of our 32+ year old siding was blown off during recent windy days. We really appreciate how friendly and quickly this company came out and replaced the section that was destroyed.”

"32 years ago this company installed siding on my house and it still looks great! Needed a small repair and with a phone call and a quick response repair was done. Thanks again for a job well done!”

- Sandy R.

"The lap siding on the front of our home was failing so we decided to replace it all with James Hardie fiber cement siding. We knew this would be a job that needed to be handled correctly. We were apprehensive about hiring someone to handle what we knew would be a huge undertaking and were very pleased with the way this company performed. We would definitely recommend them.”
