Another good way to defog thermal windows is to consistently run your home's ceiling fans. This creates a steady stream of air flow throughout your home and prevents the formation of humidity. Additionally, make a point of running your bathroom, kitchen and laundry room exhaust fans whenever humidity-producing devices are being used. Be sure not to shut the fans off until after you've finished using the device.
