Prairie Boy tip on Condensation: 

Condensation on windows is a major issue for most homeowners in Regina. This issue affects new windows as much as old windows.

You might ask, why does my new window have condensation, that's why I replaced it? 

Well actually, if you don't adjust other factors in your home, your new window might gather more condensation than your old one.  This happens because your new window has created a better seal then your old window, which leads to less heat transfer.  A greater difference of temperature between the inside of your home and the exterior, the more likely you are to have condensation on your windows. This is highly evident during our lovely Regina winters. 

                                                    

What is condensation?

Condensation comes from the moisture in the air. As the air heats up, it expands, allowing it to contain more moisture, and vice versa when it cools.  The warm air from the inside of your home comes in contact with the colder glass pane in your window.  When this air reaches a cooling saturation point, the excess moisture liquifies, creating condensation.  Another thing to keep in mind is, the less amount of panes that your window has, the colder the inside pane will be which results in a higher chance of condensation .

Condensation on your windows and doors is most noticeable when the temperature outside drops quickly, creating a big difference between the inside and outside air. It is also noticeable in the early fall because during a humid summer, the home can absorb a fair amount of moisture, and when the temperature falls outside in the fall, this moisture becomes trapped inside the home, resulting in higher humidity levels and formation of condensation on the window.


                                                   

Where does this excessive moisture in the air come from?

Believe it or not, the moisture in your home comes mainly from you.

Showering, cooking, bathing, and washing all add moisture to the air.  

During the winter season, a target level of humidity indoors is considered to be between 25 and 40%.

How to prevent condensation from forming on windows?

 

Well that depends on the amount of moisture in your air, but it is about balancing the airflow in your entire home.

There are three main ways to prevent condensation:

 

1) Reduce the level of humidity in your home

2) Get the humid air out of your home

3) Circulate the air properly and consistently

Here are a few useful tips to prevent condensation:

 

-Use a hygrometer to measure the humidity levels in your home 

 

-Ensure proper venting of all your appliances and bathrooms

 

-Circulate the air inside your home; leave a fan on for a bit or open a door and/or window to let new air in (tough in the winter but even for only a minute will help reduce humidity)

 

-Lower the temperature of your home


-Get a dehumidifier.

   

                                                     


Hopefully these tips will help you understand and prevent any condensation problems that you may be having in your home.  If you have any further questions about the condensation on your windows, feel free to give us a call anytime at 306-352-5322.
