Ugh, it’s time to grab the mop and towels again – your windows are soaking wet.
This is a very common problem in the hot, humid weather of Florida. Homeowners are often overwhelmed by the amount of condensation they see on their windows and the effort required to mop it all up each day.
Why Do My Windows Sweat?
Condensation happens because of the difference in the temperature from the inside and the outside and the humidity level. This happens when you have your AC cranked down to 60 degrees and it’s 85/90 degrees outside, and very humid.
How Do I Stop the Condensation From Forming on my Windows?
One of the best ways to prevent that condensation is to have a double-pane window. This smoothes the temperature changes from the interior of the house to the inside of the window pack following through to the outside of the window. This gives them a couple of places where they’re moderating that temperature. So you’ll find little to no condensation if you get a laminated or hurricane window installed properly. You can also choose double-pane windows with argon gas in the center, which also helps prevent that hot and cold from transferring.
