If at 30% you are getting condensation with thermopane windows, first
thing I would do is check your RH meter.
If it is correct, your windows may, indeed, be FUBAR.
Exactly what kind of windows, in what type of home construction, and

As I recall you were plonking people left and right not so long ago. I
remember you plonking me under at least two of your nyms. Perhaps
memory loss is one of your afflictions eh Gymmy Bob, or should we call
you Mr. Pot? http://tinyurl.com/c7495

Lots of people devide southern Ontario East West at somewhere between
Woodstock and Kitchener. Others make the devide at Milton.
I consider Kitchener to be Mid-Western Ontario, and from London to
Windsor South Western. Where Eastern (particularly South Eastern)
starts is kinda open to interpretation..
Anyway, if he's out along the St Laurence - between say Ajax and
Kingston, right about now, with a reasonably insulated 2X6
construction (almost by default less than 30 year old) home his
interior RH WILL be over 30% unless he's got his windows open and the
furnace running a lot.Likely over 40.
I have not had the humidifier running in my house in Waterloo for over
6 years. Have not even got one installed since replacing the furnace 3
years ago. House is standard 2X4 constructed, brick veneer bottom,
aluminum top 2 story built in the late seventies. Current interior RH
is 39-40%. On the coldest, nastiest days my front bay window and
kitchen window (still original aluminum frame dual unit - not
thermopane) occaisionally get a bit damp. Otherwize, my Rehau profile
vinyl framed thermopane side slider windows have never had a problem.
Fewer condensation problems. High-performance Quieter home. High-performance
windows often windows stay warmer in the winter resulting in drier utilize
multiple glazing and insulated frames. These windows with fewer
condensation-related problems. features reduce unwanted noise from the
outside. Condensation can stain fabrics, lead to mold and
mildew build-up, and in cold climates cause damage
