Energy efficient windows might fog up if your humidity is high.
Before when you had those old drafty windows the normal moisture in your home (from showering, cooking, breathing, etc) could escape right outside.

They are also lowering your heating and cooling costs, and keeping you more comfortable in your home.
More importantly, as the temperatures outside get colder and the humidity inside your home increases, you might notice more condensation building up on your windows.

So if you have some indoor condensation or you want to make sure you don’t get any, keep reading.
