Think it's your garage door opener opening and closing your door???? Think again........Counterbalance springs are how your door is actually lifted and closed. It is not the opener that actually lifts and closes your door. That just provides the push to get the door moving. It's actually the springs, which are wound tightly when your door is closed. As the door moves up, the springs unwind, which provide the force necessary to lift the door. As the door closes, the weight of the door actually winds the springs back up until it closes completely. At this point the springs have their full tension again. These springs are normally exposed and when they are under full tension, can be extremely dangerous.
Have you noticed condensation on the lower 6-7" of your windows? It's not abnormal to have some condensation on the interior of your windows during winter months and depending on the humidity level in your home it can be more or less.
If you do have more then a couple of inches then you may have a poorly insulated window that requires some attention or even a complete replacement.
Under no circumstances should the moisture be between the window panes as that signals the need for a window replacement due to a seal failure between the panes and although you can have the moisture cleaned by professionals it doesn't fix the problem.
