Should You be Worried About Window Condensation?

There are instances where your windows will start to ‘sweat’ or fog up. This is called window condensation, and it’s generally caused by a number of things. But is this actually a normal thing? The premier window company in the area, Renewal by Andersen of Kansas City, answers this here.

Window Condensation

Yes and No

Condensation occurs in windows when there’s a difference in temperature between the inside and outside of your home. When warm air comes into contact with the cold surface of the window glass, the moisture will collect on the glass surface, causing it to sweat or fog up. This is normal, and you’ll find that the condensation will evaporate in time, leaving your windows with a clear view once again.

The only time you should be worried about window condensation is when it occurs between the panes of the window glass, not on its surface. This can only mean the seal of your windows has failed, making it easier for outdoor temperatures to transfer into your home. A failing window seal can compromise your home’s thermal comfort and energy efficiency. That’s why, once you spot condensation inside your windows, you’ll want to make sure the issue is dealt with promptly.

How to Mitigate Window Condensation

There are plenty of things you can do to reduce window condensation, such as ventilating your home properly, changing its air temperature, or running a dehumidifier. But the simplest and most effective way to deal with window condensation–especially when it’s become a warning sign of seal failure–is to get high-quality replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen of Kansas City.

They use Fibrex® composite for sashes and frames, allowing for windows that have the strength and insulating properties of wood, and the low-maintenance performance of vinyl. Their dual panes are made of High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass to prevent unwanted solar heat gain and ensure lower cooling costs. To create an airtight seal, our windows combine the durability of Fibrex® with stainless steel spacers and argon gas blend. They provide the thermal barrier your home needs to maintain a comfortable and consistent indoor environment.
