How to fix condensation on your windows
Condensation or 'steamed up' glass is often caused by poor heating or ventilation and this air condenses on cold surfaces such as windows.
Moisture inside your home can be caused by several contributing factors including drying your clothes indoors, cooking, showering, plants, storing firewood to dryers that are not vented properly all of which contribute to raising the levels of humidity in your home. Condensation on windows is more likely to form on the inside pane of a single glazed window because there is only one pane of glass separating the inside and outside temperatures, it can also form on older double glazed windows that are not energy efficient or suffering from damaged or perished window seals.
By replacing old windows and doors with the latest energy efficient double or triple glazing windows will also help to improve the insulation of your home. Because they're much warmer, energy efficient double-glazed windows are less prone to internal condensation.
If your windows are older double-glazed windows, there is a chance that the condensation has actually formed in the space in between the two glass panes. Unfortunately, if this is the case, the only solution is to call a window professional to repair or replace it.
