External Condensation On Your Windows
If you are experiencing condensation on the outside of your windows then you are in luck. Condensation on the outside means that the windows are doing their job well. This means that your home is holding heat and little is escaping from the windows. Because the outer glass pane is colder than the inside you get the external condensation.
The condensation builds up on the outside of the windows when the temperature outside is different from the inside. Furthermore, if the temperature is lower outside than inside your home. The condensation will form on the outside of your windows.
Internal Window Condensation
Condensation on the inside of your windows is a whole different thing. This means that there is excess moisture inside of your property. More noticeable inside bathrooms and kitchens. This is an issue that you would want to get fixed, as it can damage and cause mold to break out on your windows.
One way to get rid of moisture in your house is to purchase some dehumidifiers and moisture eliminators. These will help to reduce the moisture in the air preventing the build-up of condensation on the inside of your windows. Another way is having a window open to allow water in the air to escape.
