Sweating windows

There's too much humidity in the house. Turn off the humidifier. Get an instrument to measure the humidity(hygrometer) and see at what level the windows stop sweating. Then turn on the humidifier and keep it below the level where water condenses on the glass.
If the humidifier is off for a week and you still have condensation, there's another problem contributing to the moisture.
I live in LI,NY and I have both double paned low-e Andersens and 1949 single paned double hungs with storms and don't have condensation. Relative humidity is 43% in the house.
