Window Condensation | Causes and Solutions

Your windows are clean, but fog and water have blocked the perfect view. Why do windows frequently collect condensation? Heat-causing appliances and steamy showers contribute to humid air in your house. Though there are many causes, replacing window glass will eliminate the problem.

Window Condensation in Your Home

If the temperature inside your home is drastically different from the outside temperature, your windows will collect condensation. Warm air colliding with a cool surface causes the fog or moisture to form.

Window condensation is typically caused by internal factors such as a steamy shower, an unvented gas fireplace or a boiling pot of water. However, a major cause for window condensation or "sweating" is often inefficient window glass.

Additional Problems of Inefficient Windows

Outdated or ill-fitting single-pane windows often fail to keep extreme weather at bay. You may notice a cold draft in the winter or have challenges cooling a room in the summer. If windows lack proper insulation, fog, condensation and haze are likely. Hiring glass experts to install better windows will save you money in the long run.

Insulated Glass Units Make A Difference

Glass Doctor® insulated glass units are double-pane windows separated by an insulator. Some units contain gas sandwiched between the two layers of efficient glass, which combats window condensation. Insulated glass units provide homes with more consistent temperatures and prevent drafts. This saves money on heating and cooling bills.
