Many people will choose to open a window to remove condensation within the home, the problem with this is that the weather outdoors tends to have more moisture and a higher humidity than indoors which will cause more condensation problems once you close the window.
Having humidity levels of 50% or higher in your home can damage your property and can make allergies and asthma problems worse.
Dehumidifiers were seen as the solution to moisture problems the drawback with these units is that they are only effective in the room that they are placed, they need to be emptied on a daily basis and they can consume anywhere between 50 to 800 Watts.
To prevent condensation in the home you need a continuous source of fresh air. Good ventilation of kitchens when washing or drying clothes or cooking is essential along with a source of ventilation in your bathroom to remove moisture from taking a shower or bath.
The vent is not designed to combat condensation alone but will help circulate air when used with other vents or systems. In some buildings bathrooms or toilets do not have windows. However ventilation will be provided usually by mechanical means. It is important that all ventilation systems are used properly.
Unfortunately, due to the British weather the extent of the condensation problem can be so bad that prevention on its own will not solve the problem and you will need to make arrangements to control the condensation in your home.
