Window Condensation, Part 2: Ways to Prevent It

Poor indoor comfort and window condensation are some of the issues related to high humidity levels. These can also lead to damaged window sashes and frames. Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois can help you lessen maintenance costs and maintain a cozy indoor environment through our replacement windows in Bloomington, IL. Here’s how:

Window Condensation

Energy-Efficient Glass and Durable Frames

Our windows prevent condensation issues through smart use of materials. They come with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass that ensures clear windows all year long. It comes with a special metallic coating that absorbs radiant heat and restricts heat flow through the glass. This leads to a warm glass surface where condensation cannot form. Our glass packages also offer energy savings.

We also use durable frames for all our windows, including bay window in Champaign, IL. With our composite Fibrex® frames, you don’t have to worry about rot, cracks, or corrosion. They also stand strong against any weather condition, staying rigid even under fluctuating temperature. You can also expect considerable energy savings from our Fibrex frames because they have insulating levels on par with wood.

Together, Fibrex and High-Performance Low-E4 glass can maintain a consistent indoor temperature all year round. Without sudden drops or rise in temperature, you don’t have to worry about condensation.

Other Benefits of Renewal by Andersen Windows

Our double hung windows in Galesburg, IL, and other window styles, also create a cozy indoor environment by preventing drafts. We do this through proper window installation. We will conduct pre-installation measurements so your new windows will fit perfectly in the opening. We will then cover any gaps with insulating foam, which we cover with stylish trim.

We strongly believe in our products, which is why we back them with strong warranties. Fibrex and glass come with a 20-year limited warranty, sash and locking mechanism with a 10-year coverage, and installation with a 20-year warranty.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
