What to do About Condensation?
High humidity levels inside your home cause most interior condensation. New windows are more energy efficient and don’t allow this moisture to leak outside. When excess warm air comes into contact with a colder surface such as your windows, it holds moisture and is released in the form of condensation.
What can you do to reduce condensation inside your home?
- Use a dehumidifier
- Open your windows
- Minimize plants
- Use your hood fan when cooking
- Use bathroom exhaust fan
Exterior condensation typically occurs in the spring or fall and is no cause for concern. When the temperature is warm during the day and then cools off in the evening, exterior condensation may occur confirming that your windows are performing as they should.
