What to Do About
Take a closer look at the condensation on the windows.
Weatherize your windows.

Start eliminating easy-to-spot sources of humidity.
Plants release moisture into the air as they grow, so move them off your windowsill during the cold season.
Enlist exhaust fans to ventilate excess moisture.
Since the bathroom and kitchen are humidity hot spots, using an exhaust fan to send some of that excess moisture outside should help dry out indoor air.
Check for other air flow issues.
Hire a pro to find the source of condensation.
If you’ve winterized your windows and ruled out the likely causes listed here, hiring a home inspector (or a mold and mildew specialist) is your best bet.
