How to Stop Condensation on Your Windows

As the frosty weather draws in, the increase of condensation on your windows could soon become damaging to your home, especially if you have old, wooden, windows.

Interior condensation is caused by an excessive amount of warm moisture in the house and often occurs in winter as the warm air in the home condenses on the cold windows, causing them to fog up and become wet. It can also be damaging to your home, causing moulding of plaster and wallpaper which can be detrimental to your health if left untreated.

We’ve put together a few tips and tricks to help you avoid/eliminate interior condensation in your home this winter.

1. Turning down your humidifier. If you own a humidifier or are considering one, it’s helpful to know that these can be one of the main culprits when it comes to interior condensation as they release moisture into the air, meaning more water-vapour on your windows. You don’t have to turn it off completely, but you can lower condensation by lowering the settings.

2. Bathroom and kitchen fans. Whilst you’re cooking in the kitchen or bathing/showering in the bathroom, keep your extractor fans on. Cooking and showering releases lots of moisture into the air in the form of steam, which goes on to create condensation. Extractor fans help remove the moisture from the air created by cooking and showering.

3. Turn the heating up. Raising the temperature in your home can help reduce interior condensation as condensation occurs when warm air particles hit a cold surface, just like when a cold can of coke starts to get wet when removed from the fridge as it’s being exposed to warmer air. To defeat the cold surfaced windows, you can up the temperature of the home therefore, warming up the windows so that when cold air hits, the effects of the warm air hitting them won’t be as extreme.

During, the cold seasons it’s important you care for and maintain your windows to avoid damage in your home and a hefty bill to repair it all. For more information on caring for your windows, call us today on 0800 1357167.
