5 tricks to eliminate condensation on windows

Did you know that  condensation  forms when moist air comes into contact with a colder surface? This is why we notice the problem more often in winter and see it on our windows.

Condensation not only damages  the materials from which the window is made  , but also leads to the formation of  mold  on the window and walls. In this article we explain how to get rid of them.

In winter, cold and rain cause  humidity to build up in our homes  , and the problem becomes even more noticeable around the windows.

Condensation occurs when moist air comes into contact with a colder surface. The occurrence of this phenomenon clearly indicates that there is excessive humidity in the house.

Condensation  on windows  is a serious problem that needs to be addressed at its root. We must therefore determine the cause of excessive humidity in the house.

1. Ventilate the house daily

Condensation forms during normal actions such as taking a hot shower, opening a hot oven, or boiling water.

For this reason, it is important to ventilate the house daily so that the air can be renewed and the internal temperature can regulate itself. For example, opening windows for 10 minutes a day or installing ventilation devices can prevent condensation from forming on the windows.

2. Use extractor hoods or dehumidifiers

If you cannot open the windows, we recommend installing a device that can help reduce humidity in the house.

Air extraction or dehumidifier systems are the most suitable in this regard and can drastically solve the problem by reducing condensation and increasing thermal comfort in our homes.

3. Check the temperature inside the house

As already mentioned, condensation occurs when there is a large temperature difference between the inside and outside of the house.

For this reason, we recommend maintaining an average room temperature of over 17°C, but not too hot. To check the temperature, you can use a room thermometer.

4. Renew window profiles

If the solutions described above are not enough and the windows in your house are very old or have a metal profile, the risk of condensation and mold forming in the apartment is significantly higher.

It is recommended to install a PVC profile as it is not a conductor, insulates and does not create cold spots on the surface.
