Brrrr, the cold winter weather has arrived. When the temperature drops far into the negatives, you may find that many of your windows and doors have condensation building up, which is often an unwelcome surprise. Be assured that condensation on the inside of your windows is proof that your windows are doing their job of preventing heat from leaving your home.
Condensation is caused by everyday living — from cooking and showering to always running your humidifier— and occurs when water vapor has nowhere to go. It can be damaging to your home to be exposed to too much moisture and, as a homeowner, it is your responsibility to maintain it.
Thankfully, we have this handy YouTube video to give you some guidance on how to eliminate the excess of moisture.
For a few quick tips and tricks, I have also listed these below:
- When are you about to jump in the shower, turn on the bathroom fan and leave this running for at least 60 minutes after
- When cooking a yummy dinner make sure you turn on your hood fan
- Open up the blinds in your home and lift them a minimum of 2 inches above the bottom of the window
- And lastly, you can always run your ventilation switch to circulate the air in your home
We hope this helps, but if you have any questions, our team is always here if you require further information.
