Where is the moisture coming from? It may not be your windows fault. A small amount of fog in the corners of windows is not an issue. What we are talking about it Excessive condensation that covers whole windows with fog or frost. If you have this much condensation you have a good reason to be concerned, but not about your windows. The reason to worry is where is this humidity coming and what it may be doing in other parts of your home. Moisture may be freezing in your attic and melting-acting like you have a roof leak or coming out of the walls and blistering your exterior paint.
Here are several practical steps to control moisture in your home.
1. Install storm windows or double-glazing
2. Run kitchen/bath fans longer than normal, especially after use.
3. Open fireplace damper to allow moisture to escape.
4. Air out your house a few minutes each day, including kitchen, laundry and bath-this is the major source of humidity in your home.
