Your windows are designed to provide you with a clear and beautiful view of the outside world. When a window is fogged and covered with condensation, you are no longer able to enjoy the view. Not only does condensation ruin your view, but it can also lead to serious damage to your windows. Here is a closer look at what causes window fog and condensation in double-paned windows:
Water vapor is present in the air at all times and is the cause of condensation and window fogging. When air is warm, these water molecules are spaced far apart and travel through the air. As the air cools down, the water molecules get closer together and settle on solid surfaces. Water molecules collect on the surface of the window because it is typically the coolest surface in a room.
Indoor Air Humidity
Humidity in your home’s indoor air will cause condensation on your windows. Activities such as cooking and showering will increase the moisture content of your air. To temporarily reduce your indoor humidity, you can open your windows. If humidity and condensation become a regular problem, you will need to contact a ventilating contractor to help you improve your home’s ventilation.
Dangers of Condensation
Double paned windows are treated with gas or silica pellets that are designed to absorb moisture. When these absorbent materials fail, you will notice condensation building up between the window panes. Over time, this moisture will lead to damage to the windows. The surface of the glass can become etched from water damage, and your windows may no longer properly insulate your home.

When you replace the windows in your home, it is important to consider how your windows can be used to boost your home’s security. By taking extra precautions with your window installation, you can prevent an intruder from entering your home. Here is a closer look at how awning and casement windows can provide you maximum home security:
Multi Locking Point System
Casement and awning windows feature imbedded locks that are untouchable from the outside. For increased security, you can choose to install a multi-point locking system that will boost the security of your casement and awning windows even further. With their advanced locking mechanism and durable design, casement and awning windows are extremely difficult to break into.
A double hung window has two panes that slide up and down. Because the planes are not flush with the window frame, an intruder could potentially push the pane up and enter your house. With awning and casement windows, you will have a single pane that is flush with the window frame. An intruder will have no way to push this frame open.
Awning and casement windows function like a door, with a single hinge that allows them to swing on a single axis. Typically, these windows are installed so that the hinge only swings outwards or upward. A casement window crank, sometimes called a sash winder, will allow you to open the window from the inside. An intruder will not be able to open an awning or casement window from the outside, which will make your home more secure.
