To start with, keep in mind that the outside skin of your windows is often made of vinyl or plastic. If you notice condensation on these materials, it is likely due to basic building-related causes like humidity and temperature changes. It is also possible for condensation to form if there are significant differences between inside and outside temperatures (for example, something large enough to cause heat transfer). Check out our article about how to stop windows from sweating.
Do my windows sweat because they’re too cold?
No! Some people think that their windows “sweat” when they’re warm; however, this isn’t the case. Let’s take a closer look at why your heating system might be adding moisture into the air: Your central heating system increases indoor humidity levels by distributing water vapor throughout your house (i.e., if you live in an area where dew points are high). As more water vapor mixes with warmer air, it forms clouds which can lead to condensation on windowpanes as well as other surfaces around you. This type of situation occurs most frequently during extremely humid days or nights–and if indoors ventilation systems aren’t operating properly, then this process could intensify over time! Since many older homes have poor insulation or poorly insulated walls/ceilings above their living spaces –where the venting happens–older home owners often see excessive amounts of moisture accumulate on their own personal belongings…including curtains and blinds!
