A Note About Condensation

The moisture that appears in cold weather on the interior of windows and patio doors can block your view, drip on floors, or freeze on the glass. It can be an annoying problem. While it may seem natural to blame windows or doors, interior condensation is really an indication of excess humidity in the home. The important thing to realize is that if excessive humidity is causing window condensation, it may also be causing problems elsewhere in your home.

Some simple tips to reducing condensation in the winter months are:

  • Turn down or off humidifiers
  • Vent all gas appliances, clothes dryers, and exhaust fans outside
  • Make sure crawl spaces are vented or have a good vapor barrier
  • Run exhaust fans when you cook, and also when you shower and bathe
  • Avoid storing firewood inside
  • Run ceiling fans at low speed to provide air movement
  • Open drapes and window shades to allow air to draw off moisture.
