What It Is and Why It's Here
We've officially entered the time of year when there is a significant increase in the number of questions regarding window condensation, so we thought it would be helpful for our customers to understand both condensation's sources and its remedies. In order to understand why condensation is forming on your glass and what can be done about it, it is important to answer this question: How does it form in the first place?
The Answer: When warm, moist air comes into contact with a cooler surface, the excess moisture collects on that surface in the form of droplets, because cooler air cannot hold as much moisture as warmer air. Condensation is a very natural and common event that can occur any time of year, but we see it on windows most frequently during spring and fall when warm days follow cool nights.
