Many Midwestern homeowners encounter sweaty house windows in the winter months.  While window condensation can seem like a minor problem, it can lead to severe issues.

Why Is Condensation Bad On Windows?

Windows condensate in the winter when a home’s warm, humid air meets the window’s cold surface.  Condensation on windows in cold weather can damage the frame and surrounding walls.  Window condensation can also create mold, fungus and dry rot.  Eliminating winter window condensation ensures that the health of your family remains intact.

Reasons Why Condensation Happens In Windows

Home Humidity Levels Are Too High

Healthy home humidity levels in the winter are different than the summer.  As the outdoor temperatures drop, so should a home’s level of humidity.  For example, if it’s 10 degrees outside, the home humidity level for winter should be no more than 30%.

If your residential windows are not open and have ice forming on the inside, they may be due for replacement.  Frost around windows can mean that the glass pack is no longer performing as it should.

"They replaced the windows in my house and did a beautiful job! A year later one of the windows had a leak during a rainstorm. They made multiple trips back to my house free of charge to make sure the window was no longer leaking! I couldn’t be happier with their warranty and services!"

"We had an egress window installed, and it was completed, inside and outside in one day. The workers were friendly, hard-working, and skilled. They worked together as a team, and there was nothing to clean up when they drove away. We are so pleased with their workmanship and their friendly demeanors."
