Condensation on Interior Windows
Do you see frost or water in your interior windows? That's condensation. Interior window condensation in winter is also quite common because it occurs when there's too much difference between indoor and outdoor temperatures. Condensation is formed when the moist air is in contact with the dry air. They either form water droplets or frost.
How to Stop Interior Window Condensation
The key to preventing window condensation is to control your home's humidity. Below are some tips to help you reduce condensation in the interior windows.
Consider Replacing the Windows
Condensation becomes a problem when you see it in both the exterior and interior parts of the windows. When you see them on both sides, it indicates that the airtight seal is broken and your windows will need to be replaced. Contact experienced professionals to help you install new windows for your home.
You may want to also consider replacing old windows with double-paned windows to add an extra barrier from the extreme outdoor temperature, reducing condensation in the interior windows. Replace single-pane windows as condensation is likely to develop in these types of windows. They're also not the best option if you want to save money.
Have Proper Ventilation
Good ventilation removes stale air and can reduce the moisture level in your home and prevent interior window condensation at the same time. Other ways to lower your home's moisture levels are to use a dehumidifier or clean the AC filters.
Open the Windows
When it's not too hot or cold outside, consider opening your windows to let fresh air in. Opening your windows can reduce humidity buildup inside your home and prevent condensation as a result.
Run an Exhaust Fan
You can avoid condensation in the bathroom or kitchen windows by installing and running exhaust fans. An exhaust fan can quickly remove moisture and cool down warm areas of your home. It also improves your home's indoor air quality.
