Windows are usually the first place where you notice condensation because they are the coldest surfaces inside the home. Condensation on windows occurs when the surface temperature of the glass (glazing), sash or frame is lower than that of the humid air around it. Condensation will often occur at the bottom edge of the glazing because of conduction through the spacer and air convection within the glazing cavity. Condensation can reduce the amount of natural light that comes through the window, affecting visibility, and also cause water stains, peeling interior finishes, rotting the sash and frame and the formation of mould.

New window technology offers improved insulating value and can greatly reduce condensation. If you have single pane windows, especially with metal frames, replace your existing windows with ENERGY STAR labeled windows.
energy efficient windows, which have special low-E coatings and are filled with inert gases such as argon or krypton. The additional cost is usually less than 10 percent, and the energy savings are considerable.
