Window condensation is water or frost buildup on a surface. There are a variety of contributing factors, such as low glass surface temperature as compared with the dew point of the surrounding air. High indoor humidity can also be a factor. Condensation can also occur on poorly insulated windows in unfavorable climates.
That said, you can count on Renewal by Andersen® of Portland to provide you with replacement windows in Portland, Oregon, that will reduce window condensation. Here are some of the ways you can reduce window condensation.
Make sure that your home has adequate ventilation, especially in areas that are likely to develop condensation. These areas include the bathrooms and the kitchen.
Remove Excess Moisture
Run your ceiling and exhaust fans to clear out moisture. You should also open your curtains and blinds during the day to lessen the occurrence of condensation and potential moisture damage. Adjusting your home’s humidifier and running your dehumidifier also helps prevent condensation.
