If you really dislike seeing condensation or fogging on your windows, you’re not alone. But the reality is that a bit of condensation and fogging is normal, so you can’t completely eliminate it. What should get your attention is if the issue is constant and if the condensation or fogging takes up large areas of the windows. In such a situation, you may need to consider Burlington, ON window replacement to remedy the problem.
A replacement window company will be able to help you determine whether the problem warrants changing your windows. But before you go that route, you can try out a few simple recommendations to potentially reduce condensation or fogging on your windows.
Do you notice condensation forming in your kitchen or in one of the bathrooms? Oftentimes you can address the problem by turning down the humidifier. When you do this, the machine will reduce the amount of moisture it releases into the air. This may be all you need to do to get your condensation or fogging issues under control.
Kitchen and Bathroom Fans
Whether you take a long, hot shower or you cook up a storm in the kitchen, you will release plenty of moisture into the air of your home. The problem with this is when that moisture gets trapped inside your home. You can address this issue by using kitchen and bathroom fans that will take moisture from the air.
Sometimes addressing the condensation problem is as easy as opening some windows to help some of the warm air to escape your home.
Make a point of circulating the air inside of your home. An easy way to accomplish this is through the use of ceiling fans. It’s important to use your ceiling fans not just during the spring and summer, but also during the fall and winter. This will push the warm air down towards the floor, and it may keep fogging or condensation under control.
If you want to address the fogging issue, try adding weather stripping to the windows. It’s a relatively simple do-it-yourself project, so you can add it to your windows. Doing this will prevent warm air from exiting your home, which can help to lessen condensation.
You might want to buy a dehumidifier unit for your home. It will extract moisture from the air in your home. They’re available at different price points, so find one that fits your budget and use it to reduce window fogging.
These are just a few ways you can address window fogging or condensation issues in your home.
