Sweaty Windows

Kimbel Construction - Tip of the Day: I recently heard from a client that had condensation on their new windows and on a day like today (extremely cold outside), I thought it would be good to re-post the following information for everyone to understand why windows and doors get condensation on them.

You might be experiencing this very common phenomenon that occurs when there is a large difference between the outside temperature and the inside temperature and you have to much humidity in your house.

Condensation on the windows is normally a sign that the windows are performing correctly, but it can become a nuisance to clean up and could be a sign of something more serious going on inside the house. Most homes should maintain 40% to 50% relative humidity inside, but the lower the temperature goes outside, the lower the indoor humidity has to be to prevent condensation.
