Do you have streaming windows, or, even worse, walls? Has the growth of black mould started to appear around your window frames and on walls? These are the tell tale signs which signal that your home may be suffering from condensation. Unfortunately, homes are prone to condensation even more during the winter months as there is a great temperature difference between the warm interior of your home and the cooler outdoors. Cold weather usually tempts homeowners to conserve as much heat as possible in order to stay warm, which means that the warm air circulating around your home has no way of getting out. Because of this, condensation will begin to form on surfaces that are below the dew point of the surrounding air. So, what else causes condensation to occur as soon as the weather gets colder?
Read our 'what causes damp problems' page to find out whether it's condensation that your home is suffering from. One method of dealing with condensation dampness in the home is through Positive Input Ventilation (PIV). Positive Input Ventilation is a technique designed to filter fresh air throughout your property, which will in turn reduce the amount of humidity and reduce the chances of condensation.
