How to Reduce Window Condensation

How does that water get on the inside of windows? And what in the world can you do about it?

We live in Florida, otherwise known as humidity capital. This is a common issue that we deal with, no matter the kind of windows we have in our home. But Vico Windows has a few tips that can help you.

You see, condensation on the inside of a window is the result of a higher air moisture content contacting lower temperatures on the glass. The higher the interior humidity and the lower the outside window temperature, the more condensation can occur.

Excessive interior humidity can lead to structural damage and health concerns if high moisture levels are sustained inside wall cavities. Wood rot, mold, and mildew can result. None of which are things we want to see, nor are healthy for you or your family!

So here’s what you can do to battle condensation:

  • Check sashes for smooth and adequate operation.
  • Use manufacturer-approved exhaust fans, especially when showering.
  • Install and use a dehumidifier.
  • Use ceiling fans to circulate the air inside your home.
  • Open windows and doors whenever possible to allow interior moisture to escape.

By following these simple steps, you’ll add years to the life of your windows and doors, as well as your home. They’ll continue to function like new, and they’ll keep your home looking beautiful.
