How To Reduce Condensation

18 September 2022 / Commercial Property

Condensation is horrible. It is unsightly, causes health problems, and is no good
for your building structure. It’s often a problem with multi-tenant properties in
winter.

Here’s how you can avoid it.

If water forms on the inside of your windows, heat your room at a constant
temperature. The NHS recommends you don’t heat below 16 degrees for elderly
people and those with impaired mobility
– a consistent 18 degree-minimum
should do it.

Open windows completely for a short period, rather than leave ajar. The best
thing to do is create a draught: Open two windows distant from each other. And
air your home every couple of hours in winter.

Keep trickle vents open on windows if you have them, make sure ventilators and
chimneys are unobstructed, and always use extractor fans in bathrooms and
kitchens.

If you have a condenser dryer, empty it of water regularly so moisture isn’t
released back into the air.
