Condensation appears when warm, moist air meets cooler surfaces, like a cold drink in the summer or the glass on your window on a cold winter’s day. Condensation will appear from time to time on even the best-performing windows—in fact, it’s often noticed more on high quality windows, because of their energy efficiency. You can help control condensation by reducing the humidity levels inside your house.
Here are a few ways to reduce interior humidity levels:
- Use a dehumidifier
- Turn the humidifier on your furnace down (or off)
- Keep blinds or curtains open during the day
- Leave ceiling fans on to promote air movement
- Use an exhaust fan in bathroom areas when showering
