If you continue to ignore condensation, it can cause bigger problems down the line. Condensation can go on to cause mildew and mould growth, which can cause issues when it comes to breathing.
Your home is your safe haven, so you don’t want to worry about it making you unwell. If you follow our advice you can feel confident that you are taking the right steps to protect yourself and your home.
Get your ventilation right
One of the simplest but most important ways to reduce condensation from forming is to allow fresh air to circulate your home. Opening windows helps to control condensation.
While you may not want to open every window in the house as the weather gets colder, you should focus on the kitchen and bathrooms. These rooms can get particularly humid due to activities such as cooking and showering.
Additionally, extractor fans are useful in keeping homes ventilated while showering.
Use your washing line
You may feel like you are already dodging a lot of questionable weather in the autumn and winter months, but drying your clothes outside is instrumental in reducing condensation in the home.
If you place wet clothes on radiators or use a tumble dryer, you are adding to the moisture in the air, causing humidity and condensation.
Be consistent with your heating
We all have different needs when it comes to heating our homes. Sometimes it may make sense to turn the heating down or off when we aren’t in the house, but it is important to stay consistent with our heating.
Condensation comes into play when warm, humid air hits cold surfaces. Therefore, keeping your home at a constant low temp will prevent this.
Condensation is particularly bad in poorly heated and insulated homes, such as those with single glazed windows.
Mid Wales can install double or triple glazed windows so you can feel confident that you are doing everything possible to minimise condensation. Get your FREE QUOTE here.
