With careful planning it is possible to prevent condensation build up in the home. Condensation prevention will help ensure that your property remains damp and mould free and save you having to spend more money in the future having to continuously remove condensation.
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.
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.
