While winter is usually a time to bundle up – and not perspire – sometimes, you might notice a different issue: Sweaty windows. If you have window condensation, you might be wondering if it is an issue that needs a solution. Window condensation can be an indicator that something isn’t quite right in your home, so it’s best not to ignore it. However, it is usually an easy fix, so if you notice “sweaty windows” here are four things you can do. Read on:

Adjust your home’s humidity

Sometimes, fixing window condensation is as easy as making your home a little less humid. If you have a humidifier in your home, make sure it is working properly and get a humidity detector so you can monitor how humid or dry it is in your home.

Consider replacement windows

If you have older, single pane windows, they are more likely to have window condensation than the newer, double-paned glass. New windows also have coatings and argon gas that can help with sweaty windows – and save on energy costs.

Proper ventilation

If new replacement windows aren’t in the budget, there are other things you can do. Make sure your home is properly ventilated, meaning moist air isn’t getting trapped, and also, keep your blinds and drapes open during the day. Use ventilation fans when showering and consider opening your windows for a minute or two each day to let in fresh air (you won’t lose much heat, promise!).

Increase/decrease the temperature

Sometimes, if your home is too warm or too cold – and depending on the outside temperature – you can get window condensation. Bump the temperature up or down a few degrees and see if that helps.
