you could retro fit trickle vents if the frame is wide enough

Heat and ventilation is the best cure.
Condensation can be very problematic .
Lifestyle issues and the fabric of the property can all contribute too condensation. Try to keep an even temperature throughout the day and ventilate. If it’s really bad I would definitely invest in a good quality dehumidifier. If moneys tight you can always hire one for a few weeks to kickstart the drying out process.
