Have you wondered why there is condensation on your window or patio door glass?

Condensation can form on interior glass surfaces when there is too much moisture in the air.  If the interior of a structure exceeds certain limits of moisture in the air, the moisture will condense and show up on comparatively cooler surfaces, such as glass.   


Recommended humidity levels in winter months should not exceed 25-30%.  If these humidity levels are exceeded, you may want to take measures to reduce the interior humidity level; our video can provide tips on reducing humidity in your home
