Windows bring sunshine and fresh air to your living space. They can also contribute to the beauty of your home’s interior and exterior. Sometimes, they can fog up, but it’s not necessarily an indication of a serious problem. A roofing and window expert shares possible reasons condensation occurs in windows.
Indoor and Outdoor Temperature Differences
Condensation forms when warm air touches a colder surface. Window glass could fog up when there is a significant difference between indoor and outdoor temperatures. As long as you can wipe the condensation from outside the glass, it shouldn’t be a cause for concern.
Broken Window Seals
Is the condensation on your windows inside the glass? If fogging occurs between window panes, it means window seal failure has occurred. When this happens, the affected unit will lose its energy efficiency or insulating capabilities. You should let professionals check your windows to determine if replacement is necessary. Whether you need new windows or roof repair, Homecraft® Inc. is here to help.
Showering, cooking, running the dishwasher, doing laundry and many other everyday tasks generate moisture. When indoor humidity is too high, condensation will eventually form on windows. Mold growth, rot and poor indoor air quality are other issues you could deal with when your home becomes too humid. You could avoid these problems by ensuring your house has sufficient ventilation. It will also help to use a dehumidifier and run exhaust fans when cooking or showering.
