My house is a small war-time house, built over 50 years ago. In the winter months my windows are covered with condensation, and my hygrometer is reading about 48. Our winter months in Canada consist of about 5 to -10 degrees celcius. I try not to let my humidifier run too often or this makes it worse. What is the reason for such bad condensation? I don't know how old the windows are, but they are like a double storm window with about 6" between the 2 panes of glass. The condensation is only on the inner pane of glass, not between the panes of glass. The condensation is getting so bad that the moisture drips onto the window sill and now there is mildew on the caulking and window sill that I cannot remove. How can I remove this mildew and prevent it from coming back? This can't possibly be healthy to be breathing in for me and my family. We don't have the money for new windows either. Help!!
