Experiment Update

December 6, 2014 (by Angela)

Now that it has rained and the temperatures have dropped again, I am able to see how well weatherizing of our smaller bedroom windows is helping with condensation. (See Experiment in Process and Challenges and Things I’d Like to Change for background.)

Below is a picture of one of our living room windows that is fogged up but not wet with condensation; any water is on the outside from rain.

Window without plastic

Below is a picture of one of the plastic-covered windows made at the same point in the day.  There is no fog or condensation, but there is a bit of reflection of the flash on the glass due to the close angle I had to use.  Based on this first test, I think the plastic is going to reduce moisture issues, but more results need to be accumulated before I can say for sure. What I can tell you now is that it has eliminated almost all drafts (if not all drafts) from these windows.
