Replacement window advice
I have CRAZY low humidity in my Nashville house right now, the hygrometer is measuring 7% at the moment… The house is about 20 years old and has the original wood windows, which have had rot repaired a few times, etc. I want to replace these with a quality vinyl window to help with efficiency and humidity control. (Some of you may remember other posts of mine when we moved into this house a while back that I added about 8-9″ of open cell to the attic plus encapsulated and foamed the crawlspace. I have the summer humidity under control.. it never goes above around 51% in the crawl, the living area, or the attic, but the winter humidity is WAY too low. I am hoping that replacing the drafty the windows will go a long way to solving this. I have also thought about adding an inline whole house humidifier, but I have seen you guys say that is a bad idea before…. I think….
So, if there a “top choice” in vinyl window brand and model that the experts here love?
