WHAT CAUSES CONDENSATION ON MY WINDOWS?

If you’ve recently had new windows installed, you may have noticed condensation on the glass. This is no cause for concern. It’s actually a sign that your windows are tightly sealed, as they should be.

If you notice condensation on your new windows where you hadn’t before, it means the old window was drafty, allowing outside air to quickly suck up any excess moisture. The condensation itself is formed because the cool surface of the glass came in contact with warmer gaseous moisture in the air. The cool surface causes the warmer moisture to convert back into its liquid form. Watch this video for an in-depth visual explanation of window condensation.
