Condensation covering your windows is more than just an inconvenience; you could be risking serious damage to your Kansas City home. With the weather being so unpredictable, you could be facing rot, mold, and mildew at any time of the year. So what to do? Knowing how to get rid of condensation inside windows is as important as burnt ends on ribs. 

While condensation on the window pane can be wiped away, you might be wondering how to absorb condensation from windows when it happens between panes of glass. Check out our recommendations on tackling condensation inside windows to clear up your view and safeguard your K.C. home.

Causes of Window Condensation


Excess humidity is the main cause of condensation on windows. So as a simple solution, dehumidifiers take the moist Kansas City air out of the environment, keeping as much water off of your windows as possible. Alternatively, you may try a moisture eliminator, which draws excess moisture out of the air. Some moisture-eliminating products contain scents, so you might want to put them away if you’re planning a classic Cowtown BBQ—they might just overpower the food.

If you’re looking for solutions for how to deal with window condensation in the bathroom, you may need a stronger bathroom fan. If you tend to take hot showers, you could be clogging up your bathroom with as much moisture as the Arabia steamboat in its heyday. By running the bathroom fan when you’re taking a shower or bath, you can draw moisture out of the bathroom and vent it away from your windows before the moisture can do damage.

If you take these steps to deal with window condensation and you still notice your windows have condensation between the panes, it could be a different issue.

Why Windows Get Condensation Inside


Condensation happens when water vapor hits a cool surface and condenses, due to the natural temperature difference. For water vapor to condense in between window panes, either the seal on double-hung windows has broken, or the desiccant, which absorbs moisture in between the panes of a double-hung window, can no longer keep up with the excess moisture. Another downside is that there’s less of a sound barrier between you and the aggravating K.C. traffic that might go on outside your window.

While you can troubleshoot the causes of window condensation and fix the problem when the panes have moisture, there’s no simple solution for how to get rid of condensation inside windows. 

If the windows in your home are older, their seals are likely held in place with caulk. Due to the daily shifts in the K.C. weather, the caulk can weaken over time, which may lead the seals to fail.

Newer windows most frequently use a glazing bead spacer to hold the glass in place, and seals on these windows can fail due to age.

How to Stop Window Condensation on the Inside


If you have older windows, where the seals are held in place with caulk, you may be able to replace the caulk and bolster the seal. This is usually a short-term fix because the window technician who repairs the seal can’t refill the gas that escaped from the window. Your windows will be drafty without the gas fill since the gas blocks air transfer, and your utility bills may increase as well.

Caulking seals won’t stop window condensation long term either. Most of the time, your best bet is to replace your old windows with efficient replacement windows with a seal tighter than the Chiefs’ defensive line. But when you replace the windows, you remove the problem entirely, which means the condensation should stop.

If you’ve been wondering how to get rid of condensation inside windows, take action to replace failed seals before the excess moisture damages your home.

We take as much pride in helping our customers find the right replacement windows as some NoVA drivers do in driving 35 in a 70. But with over 1,500 style and color combinations, it’s not always an easy decision. Two of our most popular options are double hung windows and slider windows – both styles improve functionality, but which is best for your NoVA home? Let’s start from square one. 

What are Double Hung Windows? 

Double hung windows are our most popular style for a reason: they’re custom-built to meet your home’s exact needs. This is the more classic window style and an Old Town staple. These windows move up-and-down in their frame, making them a perfect fit for most window openings.  

What are Slider Windows? 

Slider windows are another popular window option. It’s like Southern Virginia to Northern Virginia; it has just as much merit, but most people flock to the other one. However, unlike double hung windows, these windows slide open by moving from side-to-side across a track. Sliders are ideal for wider spaces, like when replacing a picture window. 

Which is best for your project? 

If looking for both style and energy efficiency, double hung windows are the way to go. These windows are designed to make your space feel more comfortable and lower your energy bills. This means, much like oysters in Virginia, they’re a good choice all year long. 

Double hung windows work well in most rooms, particularly if you have an air conditioner unit. The best part? With over 1,500 style and color options available including wood and vinyl, you’re guaranteed to find the windows of your dreams. 

Because of their unique sliding capabilities, slider windows are best if you’re looking for a Luray Caverns-level of ventilation. These windows are best suited for rooms with only one window, as they certainly make a statement! Consider these windows when replacing the windows facing a backyard or a garden – not only will you receive more fresh air, but you’ll enjoy an unobstructed view thanks to its sleek, low-profile frame. 

If maintenance is important, you’re in luck: both styles are as easy to clean as a Chesapeake blue crab. Double hung and slider windows come equipped with tilt-in and lift-out features to allow for easy cleaning. This feature is not often found on slider windows; however, it comes standard on slider windows from Window Nation. 

I’ve made my decision – what do I do now?

When you are deciding to upgrade your home with replacement windows in Columbus, there is a lot to consider. The various window styles available can be overwhelming to most consumers.

There are single, double, and triple-pane windows available.  

While they are all equally great for seeing the perpetual overcast sunlight in Ohio, there are quite a few key differences. 

Double and triple-paned windows feature two or three panes of glass, separated by a layer of gas. At Window Nation, we use argon gas which is not toxic (unlike Michigan fans). When captured between panes, argon gas improves thermal insulation, which improves energy efficiency by slowing the transfer of heat through the window into your home or out of your home. Though, in Columbus, there probably isn’t too much heat transferring into your home.

For a typical home in Columbus, 40% of the annual energy budget goes toward heating and cooling costs, and replacing the windows in your home is a great way to keep more of that money in your pocket. 

Window technologies have come a long way, and having windows that make a good seal is just as important as getting modern ENERGY STAR efficiency

Since energy efficiency is such an important fact to consider when getting replacement windows, we are often asked, "How much better are triple pane windows than double pane windows at saving money on energy bills?" 

This is an important question to address. But there are a few other things to consider when deciding between double and triple-paned windows. 

Here's what you need to know. 

Double Pane Windows: BEST VALUE 

You can head over to North Market and grab all the buckeyes you want with the money you save, because double pane windows are the best bang for your buck. This is why it is the number one window choice in the entire country. When you upgrade your current windows to double pane windows the difference will be as obvious as the Cavs with and without LeBron.

If budget is a factor, it makes sense to go with double pane windows for the best deal upfront. A standard double pane window with argon gas is going to reflect 90% of the energy and only let 10% through. That means on the rare occasion of a sunny day in Ohio, 90% of the heat from the sun is going to stay outside, and only 10% is going to get in. On a cold winter day, 90% of the heat from your furnace is going to stay inside your home, and only 10% is going to leak out.  

Do you want to savor all the natural light you can get here? When you have two panes of glass instead of three, you're going to have fewer coatings for the sun to get through. That means double-pane windows will allow more light into your home. It is a subtle difference, but one to consider.

Triple Pane Windows : MOST ENERGY EFFICIENT 

If comfort is your biggest concern, triple pane windows will be the best option. Triple pane windows are within a degree or two of the wall temperatures at any given time.  

A typical triple-pane window will reflect 97% of energy and only allow 3% to pass through. These are the optimal choice for energy efficiency; let your heating system take a bit of a break. 

Some of our customers are also looking for a reduction in noise. The extra pane of glass makes this window option the number one choice for keeping noise out. Living in Columbus, you’re bound to have noisy neighbors, and triple-pane windows will make all the difference.

Triple pane glass will also provide extra security. The glass we use has the same technology used in windshield design and can withstand up to 30 swings from a Progressive Field baseball bat.

What's the Verdict?

The good news is that, no matter what, double pane or triple pane windows will have an immediate benefit on your energy bills. 

If you're ready for a quality of life upgrade, grab some Skyline Chili, then reach out to us today to schedule a free, no-obligation, in-home estimate. We'll send a knowledgeable technician to your home to help you figure out what window options will work best for your Columbus home.  

Only you can decide what matters most to you. We can give you the vital information you need to make the best decision.

The weather has turned suddenly across much of the United States. Not all of us saw the 55 degree drop that hit parts of the Rockies in a single day this month, but summer has come to an end and fall is taking over nearly everywhere.

It’s a welcome relief, in many ways. In this year so unlike any other, a break from high temperatures and a return to school for the kids, even if it’s virtual in many places, brings something like normalcy. But it also brings drafts from the windows clogged gutters, and expanding cracks in our sidewalks.

One good weekend of outdoor work in lovely weather can get your home ready for the lower temperatures we know are coming. Here are twelve easy ways to prepare your home for autumn.

Fertilize the Lawn

A brown lawn in spring is caused by neglect in fall. A lush, green lawn in spring is caused by a single hour of effort now. Fertilizing in fall fortifies your lawn’s root system for the winter, so it’s ready to grow come spring’s thaw. The ideal time, experts say, is 3 weeks before the first frost. For most of the country, that means early-to-mid October

Plant Bulbs and Winter Vegetables

While you’re working on beautifying the lawn, why not plant some color that will surprise you in the spring? Bulbs go into the ground in September or October in order to bloom in spring, and there are few more rewarding signs that the cold of winter has faded than the first folds of new lilies and tulips coming through the mulch.

This year, with more Americans stuck at home than ever before, gardening has made a long-delayed comeback. But the wilting of your summer tomato plants doesn’t mean your days of eating what you grow are over. Winter-hardy vegetables like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and English peas can tolerate even a hard frost. October is the best time to put them in the ground.

Clean the Gutters

When autumn leaves start falling, gutters start clogging. To avoid water damage from overflowing gutters, and even worse, winter ice dams that can damage your roof, you’ll need to clean the gutters now.

Wash Windows and Repair Screens

Summer rains and splatter have probably left your windows less than clear. This is the perfect time to clean them, while being outside is still so pleasant.

And while you’re working on them, take note of any tears in the screens. Replacing screening material is surprisingly cheap and easy to do, so why let insects into your home when you open the windows to let the glorious early fall air in?

If you’re considering window replacement, autumn is an ideal time – easier than opening the envelope of your home to winter’s cold (though a good window replacement expert can safely do that, as well).

Inspect Siding for Flaws

Speaking of the envelope of your home, you’ll want it to be tight and secure when winter’s cold comes. One of these beautiful fall days is the perfect opportunity to walk around and do a thorough inspection of your siding. Small cracks or displacements can be repaired, or replaced if necessary, to ensure insulation before it’s needed.

Seal Cracks Around Doors and Windows

The second step of weatherproofing your home’s exterior is to reseal around doors and windows. Caulking small openings, or replacing worn weatherstripping, can eliminate drafts that cost you comfort and raise your heating bill.

Clean and Reverse Ceiling Fans

Another way to minimize your heating bill is to ensure that warm air circulates properly around your home. The same ceiling fans that helped cool you in summer can help warm you in winter – reversing the motion of the blades will circulate warm air around the room without producing a downdraft that makes you feel colder. But you’ll want to clean dust from the blades before you do it.

Seal Driveway and Sidewalk Cracks

The repeated heating and cooling of seasonal temperature changes inevitably creates cracks in asphalt and concrete. They’ll expand this fall, as the material cools from a hot summer of expansion. Before neighborhood kids tromp up to your door in costume this October, take a day to fill in the cracks.

Change Furnace Filters

If you have an old-fashioned furnace, you’re probably already changing the filters monthly. But many newer units have annual filters, or other long-life air filtration systems that only need cleaning once a season or so. Since winter will tax the furnace to its fullest, cleaning or changing filters now is essential to keeping your system in shape.

Change Smoke Detector Batteries

While you’re busy doing these home maintenance chores you don’t have to revisit monthly, change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, just to be safe.

Check on Your Winter Equipment

The worst time to find out that your snow shovel has cracked is just after the first snow falls. Before the cold gets here, start the snowblower (if you live where you need one) to ensure it functions after three seasons of rest, check your shovels to make sure they’ll work, and stock up on ice melter before the first forecast snow of the season drives the price up.

Clean Storage Areas

Finally, recognize that we all tend to acquire stuff when we’re stuck inside all winter. Be ready for it by giving away some old stuff. Fall is a great time to sort through your closets and make space.

Window cost is one of the most important factors when considering window replacement. Searching for the best replacement window company to fit your needs can be daunting. With so many different companies offering similar products at different prices, how do you know which is the best choice for you?  

The first step to help get a sense of your project budget is to assess your goals with window replacement accurately. 

When replacing windows, homeowners are typically looking to update their homes, repair damaged windows, or improve energy efficiency. In many cases, the goal is to accomplish all those things.   

Regardless of if you need to fix one window or plan to replace an entire house of windows, advances in replacement window technology guarantee an improvement in energy efficiency.   

If you live in an older home (+15 years), replacing all your older windows can be beneficial on a couple of fronts. Replacement windows can increase your resale value. New windows are a great selling feature and can add a lot to the improved appearance of your home or curb appeal. Also, there is a cost-saving due to energy efficient technology. Replacement window technology has made significant strides, and savings with your heating, and cooling bills can be impactful.  

Are you repairing glaring issues such as condensation, damaged sealant, or broken windowpanes for a select number of windows?  If the goal is to fix a few or even one window, you may want to consider replacing all on the same level. Ultimately, replacing multiple windows will be the most cost-effective solution. This is true for both energy bill savings and overall project costs.  

Next to cost, the credibility of the window replacement company is equally important. Do your research on window styles and features and read the reviewsHome improvement is an investment and it’s important to select a company that gets it right the first time.  

Unfortunately, there is no “one-price-fits-all” cost for replacement windows from Window Nation as all our windows are custom-made, causing the price of the windows to vary from project to project. The price of your windows is determined by: 

  • Material – Window Nation offers wood and vinyl windows in a variety of styles for your project. 
  • Style – Choose from a variety of styles, including double-hung, bay and bow windows, sliders, venting, and casement windows. Be sure to consider your home’s layout and needs before selecting the style of window you want. 
  • Finish – Finding the perfect finish for your windows is just as important as selecting the material and style. Choose from seven different interior and woodgrain colors and over thirty exterior colors to perfectly match your home. 
  • Installation – Installation fees often influence the cost of replacement windows. While installing the windows yourself might be cheaper, trusting a team of professionals to your project will save you the effort that comes with DIY projects. Our certified master installers will ensure your project gets completed accurately and on time. 
  • Size of the Project – The larger the project, the higher the cost. If you’re looking to replace at least ten windows, consider splitting the projects into two smaller projects to keep costs lower. Replace only the most urgent windows first, then consider replacing other windows. 

If you’re interested in receiving quotes from multiple window companies, keep in mind the price promoted in advertisements may not reflect the total cost of the windows. Many companies will use deceptive advertising to make prices appear lower than they truly are. Companies may offer windows at a lower rate; however, you may ultimately pay for a lower quality window that won’t last as long as a replacement window from Window Nation. 

If you’re looking to replace your windows, skip the showroom and have our exterior design consultants come to your home to discuss the best options for your replacement project. Our design consultants will offer three different options to help you choose the best windows for your budget. The quote you receive will last for one year, but there’s no pressure to buy on the spot. For more information about the cost of replacing the windows in your home, schedule an estimate today.

Are you on the edge of making one of the smartest upgrades you've ever done for your home? When it comes to getting a return on investment, replacement windows are hard to beat. But picking out new windows isn't as simple as pointing at a picture in a catalog. There are a lot of details to consider. After all, you're going to have those windows for a really long time. You don't want to be stuck with a purchase you're not completely happy with.

At Window Nation, customer satisfaction is our top priority. When you're happy, everybody wins. That's why we've put together this list of top considerations when choosing new windows. Take a quick peek and see if you've thought of everything.


New windows come with new features. It is important to take a few moments to think about what features matter most to you. Some windows can be opened and will allow air to flow in. Some windows do not open and are meant to let the light in. Garden windows will give you three angles of light that will not only add ambiance to the interior of your home, it will make things a lot brighter. Bow and bay windows can give you an area to put a place to sit and enjoy a good book or a spot to place plants and decorations that sparkle in the sunlight. Double hung windows are great for letting a little light in, but where they shine is in how easy they are to clean.


If aesthetics are important to you, you're going to want to take into consideration the style of windows you'll be putting in. Grid windows may be perfect for a Colonial or Cape Cod style home, but you might want to go with a double hung if you have a cottage style home. Round portholes may be perfect for a Victorian or Neo-Victorian home, but a modern home will look better with a picture window. It also matters where you place the window. Even if the window style complements the style of your home it can look out of place if it is put in the wrong spot.


When it comes to cost vs. performance, nothing can touch vinyl. It is the perfect choice if you want inexpensive windows that look beautiful and last a long time. The only big drawback to vinyl is that you're stuck with the color. Vinyl isn't going to take a coat of paint. But, for some people, this is a small price to pay for the convenience and functionality of vinyl.

If the aesthetic of wood is important to you, and you're not content with the wood-like appearance of vinyl and fiberglass, you'll have to pay extra for those windows. You'll also have to pay extra to maintain those windows. Wood needs to be stained and painted for preservation. And wood will offer less protection against insects.

Fiberglass is a good common ground between vinyl and fiberglass. It costs more than vinyl, but it is more durable and has the ability to take a coat of paint. But, unlike painting wood windows, adding a new color to fiberglass window frames is not a necessity. It is just a nicety.


All window companies aren't created equal. It is important to pick a company that has good reviews, a solid warranty, and excellence in installation. You can have the best windows in the world, but if those windows are installed incorrectly, you could be dealing with water damage, heat loss, bug infestations, air flow issues, and a general loss of comfort throughout your home. You may also be stuck paying out big money when something goes wrong.

At Window Nation, we offer one of the most comprehensive warranties in the industry, so you can be sure that you're protected if anything ever goes wrong. Our installation teams are led by experienced and certified professionals who will make sure you windows fit perfectly and, most importantly, seal perfectly. And we are an Angi Super Service Award winner, so you can trust that we'll treat you right.

What to Expect When Your Windows are Installed

When you choose your new windows, it’s time to have them installed in your home.

The installers at Window Nation are there to answer any questions you may have from installation to management. Master window installers have experience installing more than 20,000+ windows and have decades of experience.

Before the installer gets to work, they will complete a thorough inspection and walk through. The installer completes a 20-point checklist to ensure the best installation. When it’s time to get started, the installer puts down a drop cloth to keep your home clean. The installer will also get out quality tested materials and tools for the job. This ensures that windows are installed properly and in compliance with your window’s warranty plan.

When it’s time to install, the professional installer will remove your old windows. The process used ensures your home isn’t damaged during the process. They are careful to protect the paint, trim, and walls. Once the old window is out, the team installs your custom window. The technician insulates and seals the window, and caps the exterior.

The attention to your needs doesn’t stop once the window is in. The crew leader does yet another inspection to ensure it was done properly. They will also tell you about the windows and how they work, as well as answer any questions you may have. Before the team leaves, the technicians clean their workspace, leaving no trace of their activity. Only clean, beautiful windows remain.

You have worked hard your whole adult life just to save for the down payment on your dream home. Maybe you had your heart set on a beautiful older home full of charm and character that newer homes just don’t offer, and you found just the right one. You move in with your family, and then reality sets in. Homeownership can often come at a steep price. That charm that you were looking for is quite often not as practical as that of its newer counterpart, and you can quickly tell your home is in serious need of some upgrades. If you are considering changes as you look out of the original, or close to original, windows, you might want to start right there.

Here are the top five reasons you know it’s time to replace those windows:


Now that the weather has turned colder, if you are finding that you can’t walk by a window without a draft causing you to shiver, you might very well need to replace them. Even the best windows let a certain amount of air in, but you shouldn’t be able to notice it. Just like anything else you own, windows do wear out. The windows may have warped due to exposure causing the frames to become loose thus allowing air to get through.

Energy Costs Increase:

Have you noticed a steady increase in the checks you are writing to the fuel company or for your electric bill? This could be a sign that your windows might not be energy efficient. Older style windows such as single pane styles or windows that are warped will not block the cold or heat as they once might have. Replacing these with newer energy efficient windows will eventually pay for themselves in lower heating and cooling costs.

Water Stains:

When we decide to buy older homes because they have so much character, it is important to realize that older homes come with older windows. Over time, especially with older style windows, the wood frames will rot and warp due to exposure to sun, rain, and fluctuating temperatures. This can cause even the best maintained wooden framed windows to rot. If you are finding water stains on the inside, your windows are probably leaking. If that is the case, there is a good chance that you should replace them.


Single pane windows might have condensation, but that shouldn’t be the case for double or triple pane styles. If you are finding that your windows are getting foggy in between the panes this is indicative of a problem. It is likely that you have seal failure and your windows are no longer effectively insulated and probably should be replaced.

Windows That Get Stuck:

Have you had to struggle to open or shut your windows? This is a sign that they have warped over the years and are likely fitting too snugly or too loosely. Either way, there is a good chance that this window will also allow excess air in as well.
