      thank you, we bought a dehumidifier and it is taking 3 gallons of water out a day, now the windows are staying dry. maybe a dehumidifier would help your problem .

    It appears you have a high humidity problem in your home. Double pane windows have an argon gas in between the two panes for insulation factor. If your windows are cloudy or moisture in between the panes then the seal has broken and the gas has leaked out. Glass panels can be replaced. If they are clear then there is excess humidity in your home causing condensation on the window glass. Here is a link that may help you out. ***** https://www.thermalwindows.com/condensation.p...

    Crack a window a tiny bit to let the humidity out that will stop it open we’re the humidity is just a little it might be that the sun is on the window to .opening the window would be the easy way.
