Is Window Condensation an Issue?

The Mystery of Window Condensation Unveiled

Do you find yourself wiping down your windows on a regular basis because of that pesky condensation that just won’t seem to go away? Well, fret not my friend, as I have some answers for you.

First things first, let’s debunk a common myth. Condensation on windows is not always a sign of seal failure. While it’s true that seal failure can cause condensation to form between the glass double panes, it is not the sole reason. In fact, condensation can form even on windows with perfect seals. Who knew?

So, why does this happen? Well, there are a few reasons, but let’s start with the most obvious one. Humidity. When warm moist air meets a cold surface, such as a window, the moisture in the air turns into tiny droplets of water that cling to the surface. It’s science, folks.

Another reason could be inadequate ventilation. When there isn’t enough airflow in a room, the moisture in the air has nowhere to escape, and ends up settling on cold surfaces like windows. That’s why it’s important to keep your home well ventilated.

Now, you may be thinking, “What about my windows? Will condensation damage them?” Well, if you have vinyl windows, then no need to worry as condensation will not hurt them. However, if you have wooden windows, then you should take note as it can damage them over time.

So, what about seal failure? This is when you see fog in between the glass double panes. When this happens, you’ll need replacement windows due to the gas leaking between the panes. But here’s the good news, if you have Window Source windows, you’re unlikely to experience seal failure. And if you do, our nationally backed lifetime warranty has got you covered.

In conclusion, condensation on windows isn’t always a bad thing, but it’s good to know what causes it and how to prevent it. And remember, if you ever have seal failure on your Window Source windows, don’t fret, because our lifetime warranty has got you covered.
