Ways to Avoid Frost on Your Windows This Winter

During winter, when the windows are usually shut, moisture in the air gets trapped inside your interior and sneaks to the window pane. This water vapor turns from gas to liquid when the outside temperature drops below the dew point. As the glass becomes colder and gets exposed to warm, moist air indoor air, it condenses on the pane, solidifies and creates ice crystals.

Ways to Avoid Frost on Your Windows This WinterExtended exposure to ice or frost can compromise the appearance and structural integrity of your windows. Here are tips on how to prevent this problem from Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, a top local window replacement expert.

Get a Plumbing Inspection

Even a minor leak or a slow-dripping faucet can add more moisture to the air. Call a plumber to complete a thorough inspection of your pipes to ensure you don’t have a plumbing issue.

Have Your Gas Appliances Checked

Damaged appliances can release water vapor and toxic contaminants into the air. Make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector at home. If you already have one, check if it’s working or requires replacement.

Replace Outdated Windows

Old, single-pane windows are more prone to frost as well as frame and wall damage than new double-pane units. For your window replacement, choose units with multiple panes. With double-pane windows, you can avoid water damage and mold growth. These windows are also significantly more energy-efficient than single-pane units, helping improve your comfort and reduce energy costs.

Run a Dehumidifier

Ice will be less likely to form when the indoor air is drier. Running a dehumidifier is an easy way to control humidity levels inside your home.
