I live in Calgary, Canada and now that the cold weather is beginning I have noticed that a number of windows in my home have began to have ice form on the inside bottom of them. Is this an insulation problem or is it home heating problem or otherwise?

Ya-Hoo, Kevin. I lived in the Thorncliff area a number of years ago, (now Ontario). The ice is forming due to the humidity level of the house, not an insulation or heating related cause. You need to assess the moisture producing functions of your home & exhaust moisture laden interior air. While doing things such as cooking or showering, turn on any exhaust fan to expell the moisture laden air as well as open a window to allow dryer make up air to re-enter the home. Unless a Chinook is occuring, a certain amount of moisture on the windows will always be present in the winter months.
