The changing seasons of Minnesota mean that homeowners see a lot of changes at their home weather it be with the Bloomington roofing, siding, windows, or more. Window condensation is something that everyone has been exposed to. You may have seen it in your car windows or at home. Why is this happening?
Typically excessive humidity causes this condensation. It also is caused by cooler air on one side meeting warmer air on the other. This happens because the cooler air causes the temperature of the glass to drop. When the warmer air meets, condensation accumulates.
This happens incredibly easy on single pane windows, because there is only a one pane of glass separating the two temperatures. Double pane windows have an extra layer allowing for the space between to reduce heat loss or gain through the window. Because of this, it is less likely for condensation to form.
Still seeing condensation on your double pane windows? This could mean that the sealant or glazing assembly that is meant to prevent condensation is not working or has failed. Contact the contractor that did the installation to have them address this. The windows may be under warranty to cover this.
How to prevent this? The overall installation of the windows is important. Do research to ensure that you are choosing a reputable contractor that has experience with installing windows. Be sure to ask questions about the installation process.
Overall, complete prevention isn’t always possible. Hiring a reputable Bloomington roofing and window installer like Snap Construction can help ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible.
