Article Summary: 

Condensation on windows is a common issue in condominiums, affecting both older and newer windows. To deal with condensation, the article offers some tips. Opening blinds or curtains can raise the window frame temperature and reduce condensation. Using fans in the unit can lower humidity levels and decrease the potential for window condensation. Lowering the settings on humidifiers during cold temperatures can also help. It's essential to ensure operable windows are fully closed, as leaving them slightly open can contribute to condensation. If the problem persists, consulting an engineering consultant for further tips and evaluating the condensation performance of window systems is recommended. When replacing windows, considering the condensation rating is crucial, as new windows with higher ratings may come at a cost premium but are a long-term investment.
