Not only do foggy windows make it difficult to see outside, but they’re also an eyesore. And for that reason, you don’t want to let this issue linger.
There are two common causes of foggy windows in your home:
• A broken window seal
• An extreme difference in temperature between the indoors and outdoors
While there’s nothing you can do about fog as a result of a broken window seal – short of replacing it – here are some ideas to consider otherwise:
• Use a dehumidifier: By removing moisture from the air, there’s less chance of condensation building up on your windows.
• Use fans: Even during the winter months, fans keep the air inside your home moving, making it less likely it’ll stick to your windows.
• Install a window film kit: It’s a bit more work, but it’s often the best way to prevent condensation. The film acts as a barrier between your cold window and warm indoor air.
If you’ve tried everything and have yet to find a solution, it may be time to replace your windows. Not only does this rid your home of foggy windows, but it’ll also bring you a higher level of energy efficiency (which will save you money throughout the year).
