Addressing Window Condensation With Replacement Windows

Sanger, CA replacement windows

Window condensation happens in every home, but if it becomes the norm, there are things you can do to address the issue and cut back on the condensation on the windows. Sometimes, Sanger, CA replacement windows are in store while other times, you can use a few small tips and adjustments to cut back on the moisture. Condensation can lead to bubbling paint and warping window sills if you let the problem persist. Plus, it’s downright annoying when you can’t see out your windows.  

Condensation can build up inside or outside of the glass. It can also occur between the window panes. If you have condensation between the panes of your glass, you will have to get replacement windows because the deals are broken. But if you have condensation on the inside or outside of the glass, it is a temporary problem that you can address. If the condensation is outside, try putting Rain X on the glass at some point to repel water.  

Interior Condensation 

There are a number of ways you can fight condensation if it appears on the inside of your glass. The largest way is to get a dehumidifier and keep the humidity levels down within the house, but there are other things you can try as well. Use the bathroom and kitchen fans when you shower and cook to keep the moist air away before it settled on the windows. You should also move plants away from windows since they release moisture into the air and can cause condensation on glass. Check on the caulk around the windows because if they aren’t properly sealed, you might have more condensation. When the condensation occurs, open the windows to let the temperature and humidity levels balance out between inside and outside. If your HVAC system has a fan, you can also turn that on to circulate the air and alleviate the condensation.  

Older windows more often receive condensation because they aren’t sealed well, or the seals have worn out. If you have windows with single pane glass, it can be hard to tell whether its the window or another cause since you can’t tell if the condensation is between panes. If you have any doubts, consult with a window professional and ask what you can do about condensation. If your windows are old and worn out anyway, getting new models may be in your best interest.
