Article Summary: 

This article discusses the importance of condensation resistance in windows. The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) rates windows for a wide variety of factors, including condensation resistance. A condensation rating (CR) is a number between 1-100 and determines how well a window resists condensation. Condensation forms on windows when the temperature of the glass is below the current dew point of the air. It occurs when the glass is colder than the indoor temperature, and it matters because condensation forming on the windows means that they are poorly insulated. Condensation resistant windows are important in regions that experience weather extremes. The article advises consulting window and door experts to choose the best option for your home.
