First winter in the new house. All the windows seem to be sweating a lot and even have ice on the bottom of them. Looking closer, there is mold near the wood. Any ideas on what to do to prevent or help?

Also, noticed on the basement wall, there is a wetness on the wall. Almost like it is coming from inside of the wall. I can’t post a photo since it is too large.

Do you have shades that block airflow to the windows?

At our old house we had nice shades that fit tight to the inside of the jams and the lack of airflow meant very cold temps would create frost.

Our solution was to open the shade completely or, if you have the option. open at the top and bottom to allow convection air flow.
