Useful tips by one of the leading aluminum window manufacturers

Condensation occurs when warm air carrying moisture comes into contact with a cold surface, such as a window pane. This contact causes the water vapor in the air to transform into liquid droplets on the glass surface. Excess condensation can lead to problems in your home. If left unchecked, excessive condensation can lead to the formation of damp patches on walls and ceilings. These damp patches provide an ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow, which can be detrimental to both your health and the structural integrity of your home. Mold and mildew can cause respiratory problems, allergies, and other health issues, especially for people who suffer from weakened immune systems. Furthermore, dampness caused by excessive condensation can weaken the structural integrity of your home, causing damage to walls, floors, and ceilings. This can lead to costly repairs and maintenance over time.

As one of the leading aluminum window manufacturers, we’ve shared some of the tips on how to stop condensation on windows:

  • Improve ventilation by opening windows: One of the most effective ways to prevent condensation on windows is to improve ventilation. It’s particularly important to open windows in high moisture areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. This allows heat and moisture to escape, which in turn prevents the formation of droplets on windows caused by everyday activities such as bathing, cooking, and showering.
  • Ensure there are no damaged seals on the windows: Condensation may appear if the sealant between the frames and glass panes is damaged. Resealing the windows is the best solution. Installing high-quality aluminum window frames with airtight sealing can provide good air insulation.
  • Adjust the heating in your home: Sudden temperature changes can lead to condensation. During winters, using heaters on a low setting can minimize the frequent switch between hot and cold temperatures.
  • Draw out the moisture from the source: As mentioned, activities such as showering or cooking can lead to condensation. Installing exhaust fans in these areas can help remove moisture and clear misty windows. If you have an electric chimney in the kitchen, use it while cooking. Also, avoid drying clothes indoors, as this leads to condensation.

Note: Don’t turn off the exhaust fans immediately after cooking or bathing, as moisture can linger in the air. Leave the exhaust fan on for an additional 10-15 minutes to help clear the humid air.

  • Replace single-glazed windows: If possible, replace single-glazed windows with double or triple-glazed options. These provide better insulation and are more effective at preventing condensation by keeping the interior glass surface warmer.
