Stop Indoor Window Condensation

window_condensation.1Are your windows getting foggy during the winter? Have the kids been making pictures in the condensation on your patio door? Humidity indoors is a common in most homes, happening when the invisible water vapor has contact with a cooler surface and condenses into drops of liquid on that surface.

Many people believe the window or glass door is to blame, but that is not the case. When moisture cannot get to the outside, it forms a visible presence on the cooler glass surface that is preventing its escape.

While every home has humidity, if yours has excess humidity then the condensation can cause damage, from dripping off windows to cause staining on woodwork to bigger damage like peeling wallpaper, rotting wood and mold.

The best way to prevent condensation in your home is to reduce the amount of humidity that is present.  Follow these 4 simple tips:

  1. Exhaust fans – install in rooms where moisture naturally occurs, such as bathrooms, kitchen and laundry areas
  2. Vent your clothes dry and gas burners to the outdoors; this gives the moisture an escape route
  3. Open fireplace dampers to air out your house
  4. Purchase a dehumidifier for your basement

Taking proper steps to control moisture in your home is the best way to reduce condensation on your windows. If you are still having issues, feel free to contact us to get additional information.

We had Choice install the most beautiful second floor sunroom ever. They began the project in December and worked through the cold and wind to finish in the end of January.They were very professional, punctual and paid great attention to detail. The workmen were very pleasant to be around and always had time to listen and discuss any issues we had. We would recommend them to anyone that wants a quality job done at a reasonable price.

This was the most professional and 100% the best price out of all the sliding door quotes I received. They were thousands less than other companies and the door is beautiful. Took them only a few hours to install and made it look beautiful. I recommended them to all my neighbors and friends already. Dont waste your time getting quotes from anyone else. Beautiful job Choice!

We used Choice to redo our master bathroom and kitchen. They did a great job with the design and installation. The crew working in our home were professional and very skilled. They didn't take any short cuts and we didn't get extra charges after the initial proposal. I would definately use them again and recommend them.
