I live in Utah. You would think I would need a humidifier in my home but that's not the case. I have lots of condensation on my windows & walls & the average humidity is around 60% or higher. I get mold growth on my window frames & base boards. My windows were replaced right before I bought my home, but I'm wondering if they aren't high quality. A couple of them have already cracked. The window company told me it was from the load on my roof. I really don't believe their answer. I only have one exhaust fan which is in my downstairs bathroom. Anyway, what is your suggestion? Should I get a whole house dehumidifier, more exhaust fans,or new windows?

First off, as for the windows - I cant answer that without seeing the place, but with high humidity like that, you could have some issues in the wall allowing...
