You are very often bothered by the presence of fog on your windows and you do not know how to get rid of it. Well! This is a problem due to condensation in the windows. To solve it, you don’t need to change the windows. All you need to do is adopt a few basic practices and benefit from a professional quality caulking service.
Why the fog on your windows?
Condensation is a natural phenomenon that sometimes occurs in windows when warm, moist air touches the cold surface of the windows. This event is very often the basis of the presence of fog on your windows, which makes houses very uncomfortable. It’s basically the temperature difference between the inside of your home and the outside climate. Also, for a thermos glass, the degradation of the sealant around the glazing leads to the penetration of moisture inside both panes, which condenses afterwards. Thus, you may be prevented from contemplating the external beauty of your home through the windows. This is a real concern to which you must absolutely find a solution.
Don’t change foggy windows
Changing foggy windows is not an ideal solution to combat the presence of fog on your windows. However, you can simply replace the thermos unit, and get a gain in energy efficiency.

Fight against fogging on windows: what to do?
The only thing you can do to combat fogging on your windows is to prevent condensation on your windows. Indeed, you must succeed in lowering the humidity level and controlling the temperature differences in your building. To do this exercise, you must absolutely adopt certain behaviors.
Make sure the air circulates well in the room
To prevent fog from forming on your windows, the temperature must not be too lower than that of the outside. To do this, you need to make sure that your air exchanger and outdoor ventilation systems are in good condition. In the bathroom as well as in the kitchen, care must be taken to ensure that the fans are working properly and that they are used regularly. In general, you need to make sure that all the ventilation systems in your home are working properly.
Minimize the formation of fog on the windows
Minimizing the formation of fog on the windows naturally reduces condensation in the windows. Indeed, you should not lower the temperature of the rooms too much in your absence, in order to avoid humid air from touching your windows. In addition, the temperature of your basement must be well controlled to allow the heat to rise to the upper floors of your building. Also, when the windows are too old, they participate in the phenomenon of condensation. Therefore, changing the windows can help decrease condensation and consequently, decrease the risk of fogging on the windows.
Which glazing is recommended for the replacement of a glazing?
In order not to spend unnecessarily, the choice of glass for your windows must be perfect. This choice depends not only on the area where you live, but also on the size of the window or door. It is recommended to opt for double glazing, as these are composed of two superimposed panes that contain an insulating gas such as argon. At this level too, you need to be very careful. The thermal resistance provided by a basic sealed double pane is R-2. On the other hand, a unit containing argon gas and equipped with a film with low emissivity such as thermos, reaches between R-3.4 to R-4.2. It is for this reason that thermos windows are the most recommended.
