4 Simple Ways to Minimize Condensation on Windows

While window condensation can be inevitable sometimes, it can cause major problems in the long run when left neglected. For one, it can damage plaster, rot wood molding and encourage mold growth, which not only affects window performance but also your home’s indoor air quality.

4 Simple Ways to Minimize Condensation on Windows

Fortunately, there are several ways to address this issue. Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, your premier windows installer, lists four ways to do so:

1. Adjust the Temperature

Condensation takes place when warm air makes contact with a cold surface, that’s why it’s more common during winter. The greater the difference between the outdoor and indoor temperatures, the more likely moisture will become visible on your windows. In this case, you may raise your home’s temperature a bit to reduce condensation.

2. Allow Air Circulation

Proper ventilation is key to reducing condensation on your windows. Ceiling fans can evaporate some extra moisture while ensuring that air continues to circulate throughout the house. As your top home window replacement expert, we also recommend opening your windows to drive the warm, moist air out and bring the cool, outdoor breeze in.

3. Take Advantage of Exhaust Fans

Cooking and showering produce a lot of moisture in the air, which can get trapped in your kitchen and bathroom. To prevent this, you may want to run your exhaust fans for about 15 to 20 minutes after doing any of these activities.

4. Invest In a Dehumidifier

Dehumidifiers are a cost-effective solution to eliminate excessive moisture on your windows and throughout your home. There are small-capacity models that you can use for small rooms like bathrooms or laundry rooms, and there are whole-house models as well if you live in a humid climate or you have a large home.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
