Your Top Choice for Foggy Window Repair in Garner
Located in the heart of the Triangle area of North Carolina, which is privy to its share of rainfall, Garner experiences its share of tropical-like weather throughout the year. What does this mean? It means days where the temperature may fluctuate from hot to cold, moist air to cool, dry air – all of which can contribute to issues with fogginess in your windows.
Window fog occurs when condensation develops between your window panes. This condensation occurs as a result of your window unit expanding and contracting based on the weather. For example, on warmer days during the summer, your window unit is actually designed to expand. Later, as the evening settles in (or the weather is cooler, your window unit will contract. This type of expansion and contraction occurs on a daily basis throughout the year; and over time, it can (and will) cause gaps or pockets of air to develop in your window seals.
Thus, the more stress you have on your window seals – the more air and moisture will get in, resulting in that annoying fog you see between your window panes.
Yes, you can fix broken seals on a window. Usually, broken window seals are inconvenient, but not huge issues. Essential to optimizing your home’s energy efficiency, window seals hold your home’s desired air temperature in, whether that be cold air or hot air. Aside from condensation, broken window seals do not ruin the function of a window.
How can I stop condensation on windows?
If your windows are constantly fogging up, try turning down your humidifier. On the other hand, moisture eliminators, such as DampRid, have been known to improve foggy windows. These types of products typically cone in bucket-like containers that can be hung or set on the ground. These types of products can be used in kitchens, closets, bathrooms, and many other rooms.
By utilizing kitchen and bathroom fans, foggy window difficulties can usually be mitigated. Showering and cooking can release extensive amounts of moisture into the air, resulting in clouded and foggy windows. If your home is equipped with ceiling fans, don’t be afraid to put them to use!
Believe it or not, your window unit expands and contracts based on the weather. On hot days when the sun is heating up your window, it causes the entire window unit to expand. As the weather cools down in the evening, your entire window unit will contract. This expansion/contraction puts pressure on your window’s seals, eventually pushing air out through the seals.
Now, repeat this action on a daily basis, and over the course of time, the stress on your window’s seals causes more air to get in, and along with the air comes moisture – which results in the foggy appearance.
