(SOLVED!) Should New Windows Fog Up?

Condensation forms on an object when that objects surface temperature goes below the dew point 😊 The dew point is defined as the temperature where the air is 100% saturated with moisture – or where the air is at 100% relative humidity 😎 Condensation can form on new windows when the glass’s surface falls below the dewpoint 🔥 It’s not something to be concerned about. You should be aware of what is going on in those areas. Windows with the condensation is that the window is performing exactly as designed…It is blocking the heat from inside your home from reaching the outside Your home should be able to let the sun through your windows, allowing it to cool down. [1]
The process whereby gas becomes liquid is called condensation. If the temperature of an object falls below what is known as the dew point temperature, then water vapour from the air will condense on the object’s surface. You can compare the dew points of different air types (e.g., a bathroom to a living room) as well as the temperatures of the air. The warmer the air, the more water vapour it can hold – but it can only hold so much, so if this saturated air encounters a surface that is below the dew point temperature, then it will condense. [2]

Yes. It’s more likely to occur:• In areas where January temperatures average 35°F or less.• In summer and fall, when homes pick up moisture from damp air.• Condensation can also form on the outside of your windows. Reverse condensation occurs when the outside temperature is high and humid. If it is hot and humid outside, this reverse condensation usually occurs. Air is cooler inside your homeThis makes the glass surface more cool than the dewpoint. Can plants increase the chance of having reverse condensation.• With sharp, quick drops in temperature, creating temporary condensation problems.• For one year after construction or remodeling, while building materials dry out. A large amount of moisture is retained in building materials. Condensation should be expected through the first heating season.• On bay or bow windows, where circulation is often restricted and windows tend to be a few degrees cooler since they project out from the insulated house wall.• When drapes are closed Shades should be pulled down. Shades that are too tight or insulated can restrict airflow and cause condensation. Loretta Ricks, October 6, 2021. [3]
