Condensation

Maintaining Condensation on CTV Morning Live

Our certified Window Geek Anton spoke with CTV Vancouver Anchor Marke Driesschen about the causes, concerns and solutions to condensation.

The CTV team learns how to take care of your windows and eliminate the build-up of condensation. Watch the segment to learn how condensation can become a bigger problem if it is not addressed. To learn more about condensation, take a look at our previous blog on condensation solutions!

You will need to analyze which kind of condensation you are dealing with because not all condensation is bad. Depending on where it is appearing on the window, it may not be a cause for concern. However, if you do see condensation in between the two panes of glass, you need to address the problem.

Every house is different, and every homeowner has a different issue. Do not fear, Centra is here! Here are reasons, tips and quick fixes to help reduce excess humidity and condensation in your household.

 

Tips To Reduce Excess Humidity And Condensation:

  1. Crack open a window or door for a few minutes daily to have airflow through your home
  2. Open your drapes and blinds to allow air to circulate against the windows
  3. Use energy-efficient bath fans with a de-humidistat to regulate the moisture in the air
  4. Use exhaust fans in your kitchen, laundry, and bathrooms
  5. Make sure your clothes dryer is properly vented to the outside and your vent ducts are sealed
  6. Open the louvres in your attic, basement, and crawl space and ensure they are the correct size to allow proper ventilation for the space
  7. Open fireplace dampers to provide an escape route for moisture
  8. Turn down your heat to reduce the difference in temperature between inside and outside
