Re: bad windows? mold?

Your windows are fine, get your "ventilation fan" working correctly or running continuously until the window condensation is gone.

Re: bad windows? mold?

Look up the make/model and find the owners manual online. It should be running continuously if there is that much water showing up on the windows. Ideally you want to run some kind of automatic setting from that control panel.

Re: bad windows? mold?

Your HRV needs to run more, like continuously until the water stops appearing. Post a pic of the wall control.

Re: bad windows? mold?

I had the same problem when I moved into my new house in 07. In my case the installer had the wrong HRV controller on the wall and I didn't have it set right. After having it changed out and using it correctly we now only get very small amounts of water on the windows in extreme temps (I'm in Sask s...

Re: bad windows? mold?

What does your wall control look like? The 20/40 is a model number or maybe a timer?? We have some 20 min HRV timers in the bathrooms.

Re: bad windows? mold?

Where do you live? You probably need a heat recovery ventilator (HRV) or if you have one you probably don't have it set right. The water on the windows is a symptom not the problem.

A DeWalt DWE7480 table saw. I need a table saw about once every 5 years so I didn't want to buy one but finally did.

I turn the breaker off inside the house and cover the outdoor unit. I didn’t cover it for years before that though and it was fine.

I have a truck that I don't drive very often, a 2003 F-150 and I like it more than the new trucks. It's simpler, smaller, has a COLUMN SHIFTER, and really quite reliable. I don't know why automakers feel the need to make things bigger every time they redesign, that doesn't mean better. Here's my dre...

Toilet magnet, huh never heard of such a thing. See https://www.lehmans.com/product/toilet-magnets-set-of-4 - you can still buy them, $12.99 for a set of 4. We all know sometimes it's the "crazy" things that really work. Drop magnets (housed in clear plastic) into the tank of your toilet and walk aw...

I always try to buy original brand oil filters, simply because they have to meet a high standard. The el cheapo filter makers don’t need to warranty your engine so they don’t necessarily need to give a crap. If GM uses AC Delco filters on new vehicles under warranty then you can trust that brand for...

You should try 303 in anything vinyl, rubber, or plastic. Especially black stuff like tire sidewalls and plastic black trim.

No bug guard. If you must, paint protection film is a modern version. If you drive lots it’s probably worth doing the front hood edge. If not, then it’s probably not worth it.

Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

Typical dish soap strips off wax and polishes, that's why it's not recommended for washing your car. If you never wax or polish your car you probably don't need to worry about it but if you wax your car to help protect the clearcoat and make it easier to clean in the future then you are working agai...
