Why Do I Have Window Condensation?

Why Windows Get Condensation On Them?

During the colder months, we expect to see condensation on our windows. You may notice that condensation may form on your windows in the morning. Depending on the location of the condensation, it might not be anything to be worried over. Browse this article for more information.

External Condensation On Windows

If the condensation is on the outside of the windows then you are in luck. Condensation on the outside means the windows are doing a good job. Your home is retaining heat, and the heat is not escaping from the windows. Furthermore, when the outer glass is colder than the indoor glass pane, you get external condensation. Condensation builds up on the outside of the windows when the temperature outside is different from the inside. So the condensation forms on the outside of the windows.

Internal Window Condensation

Condensation on the inside of your windows is a different matter. A buildup of condensation on the inside of windows means there is excess moisture inside of the property. Condensation is more noticeable inside bathrooms and kitchens. The condensation may damage and cause mould to break out on your windows. One way to get rid of moisture in the house is to purchase a dehumidifier or moisture eliminators. They will help to reduce the condensation buildup. You could also try opening a window to allow air to escape. But in most cases, replacement windows will rectify the issue too.

Window Condensation Between Glass Panes

Having condensation between the glass panes in your window may be a sign the double glazing is faulty and needs the windows need replacing. Condensation between the glass panes will usually occur if there is a gap in the unit itself. Furthermore, this may need attention from a home improvement engineer.
