In reply to condensation by Harold on November 19th, 2002 02:46 PM [Go to top of thread]

Greetings Lisa, (& Harold)

What has happened here is that you have added several means of making this house tighter and you have not addressed getting rid of the moisture in the house.

As Harold stated, air exchange is important and also as you have found out, that the moisture is everywhere, it just shows up on the windows.

The human body puts out one pint of water overnight while you are sleeping.

A dehumidifier will help.

I live in NH and I installed some replacement windows for a customer last weekend and on Monday I was told that all the windows had moisture on them. But, luckily they read the pamphlet about condensation and are taking steps to reduce the water in the home.

If you wanted to check the amount of water you have in your home, the tool you would have to use is a "sling Sycrometor". (don't be too impressed, I had to use one in the Coast Guard).

I hope this helps.

Good luck,
