Condensation is the transition from gas to liquid. Gas molecules have lots of energy because they are moving around quickly. To turn them into liquid, you have to slow them down significantly, by removing heat from them. Therefore, condensation releases heat.
Condensation releases heat and is exothermic because molecules are going from the gas phase to the liquid phase by making bonds. Creating bonds will release excess energy as the two molecules move to a lower energy level so that energy will be released back into the surroundings in the form of heat.
