The Problem

Visible moisture collects on the glass surface of your windows. So much in fact that it drips on to the surrounding frame and woodwork. This situation tends to occur more during the winter than any other time of year.

The Reason

There may be several reasons for this, but more often than not it has to do with the quality and age of your windows. Consider this, during the winter a reasonably good window will be cold to the touch on the outside as you would expect and relatively warm to the touch on the inside. Now contrast that with an old or poor quality window which is cold to the touch on both sides. The problem with a cold window surface on the inside occurs when warm air (which carries water vapor in the form of moisture) from within the living space comes into contact with the cold inside surface of the window and condenses to water. This can be especially prevalent in the bathroom while showering or in the kitchen when cooking.

The Fix

Fortunately The Pro’s at Energy Geeks have a simple solution, replace those old outdated windows with new energy efficient double pane windows. There is no need to buy expensive windows for this purpose as even average windows on the market today are built to prevent condensation. Windows today are designed with air spaces between the panes of glass and also within the window frame itself. This helps to prevent what’s called thermal bridging. As the name implies thermal bridging is the transfer of heat or cold via a bridge such as two surfaces touching.
Best of all, you may qualify for zero percent interest financing through the Mass Save Heat Loan Program which can be used for window replacement and other energy efficiency improvements. Isn’t it about time you upgrade your windows?
