Everyone in the industry has or will at some point get a call from a panicked homeowner with new windows stating, “My windows are failing! I have water on the glass or even worse yet, frost. Ahhhh. Send someone here right away.”

A hygrometer is the perfect educational tool to understanding — and most importantly proving — when a condensation issue is present in a home.
