Question 1: Our windows to the north are super cold and we have so much condensation on them that it will actually run onto the floor or actually freeze. They are new Quaker windows and we can't figure out why they are so cold. I was wondering if we could put storm windows on them like I see in the older house? This would create a nice air space that I'm hoping will reduce the amount of condensation. The rep didn't know if we could
Question 2: We just had our window rep come out and look at these windows. I asked him if they were low e glass and he said no. But he also said that low e glass doesn't provide any benifits on north windows. Is that true?
Question 3: The rep also said that all glass is equal and it's not the glass that is the problem but the humidity in the house. Which we keep around 35-40% at 68 deg if it gets much lower we get nose bleeds. Every thing I've looked at said that is fine for down to 0 deg outside.
So it comes down to this. I know condensation on windows is normal but the amount we have actually running off the windows is crazy. AND when it's cold enough it actually freezes. The rep is basicly blaming the humidity and our geo-themal system saying it's not putting out hot enough air to dry the windows. Just to give you an example of the temps I'm dealing with. As of right now it's 67 inside 35 outside and the glass temp is 49.
