How to stop window condensation

Stephen Linley-Shaw 09/11/2017 0 Comments
I'm often asked how to stop condensation on windows. 

During the day humidity builds up in the home and at night the dampness condenses on the coldest surfaces.

So you have three choices.
1 Reduce the amount of damp you put into the air - drying clothes outside, not boiling water, taking shorter showers,not breathing !?
2 Make every surface the same temperature - very expensive - not practical to heat windows, expensive to triple glaze
3 The best ANSWER ....allow the damp air to escape slowly by better ventilation - DIY-  you can keep windows ajar, open air vents and keep extraction fans running longer (if you have them)

PIV (positive input ventilation) is a proven method of reducing humidity in the home and has been tested by Which magazine. Machines are cheap to run and do the work automatically so no windows have to be opened at all.  Leading suppliers of PIVs are Nuaire

Note that window condensation is the obvious sign you have a damp problem - elsewhere in the home bedding/clothes will also be damp and black mould may be destroying the fabric of your home.
