Condensation on the outdoor surface of an insulating glass unit is not an indication that the insulating glass unit is defective. Under the right set of atmospheric conditions, it is possible to get condensation on the exterior glass surface of an IG unit. Specifically, these conditions are as follows:
• Glass temperature below dew point temperature
• Clear night sky
• Still air
• High relative humidity
• Well-insulating glazings
If you feel that your home needs an update or you are considering a home renovation, replacing your windows may be the facelift your home needs to bring it up to date. Windows can add intrigue and style to your home without committing to a complete home renovation.
New home renovations have made a push for a focus on natural light. When sunlight can enter your home, it is amazing how much larger and cleaner your home can feel. Some people are ditching the double hung on the rear of their house and placing a patio door while others are installing Bay windows in their living rooms. There are many options to be had.
Current trends have seen homeowners take a proactive approach to energy efficiency and for good reasons, too. Increasing the efficiency of your home is good for the environment, enhances the quality of life (we’ve all heard “keep the A/C in the house!”), and ultimately, saves money in the long run.
