You might not think too much about the water drops of condensation that form on your windows, but they could actually be a problem. With high humidity in the air, condensation can form on any cold surface, and if it pools up, it can cause water damage and mold growth. It might seem like there isn’t that much liquid, but it doesn’t take a lot to get problems started. 

To minimize condensation in your home, you will first need to keep the hot humid air from the outside from seeping into your home. This could happen if your insulation isn’t sufficient. Patching up holes and insulating areas of your house that take in a lot of outside air will definitely help the situation.

Having a dehumidifier can also make a huge difference, but unless you have a unit that will drain the water outside, you need to make sure to empty out the unit often, since it can fill up fairly quickly, and then stop running.
