Condensation Control

 

OK.  It is possible to write several pages about Condensation and it’s effects, but you would get bored and miss the point and neither of us would get anywhere!  Therefore:-

 

What is Condensation?

 

The main cause of Condensation is the generation of moist warm air by domestic activities. Moist air can come from Cooking, Bathing/Showering, Washing and drying clothes as well as Paraffin heaters and flueless Gas heaters. Many litres of water may be produced each day which can then condense on cold surfaces.

 

Other Problems

 

The worst of which is Mould growth.  This can be found in many areas particularly where there may be stagnant pockets of air such as the back of furniture where it is stood against a wall. The back of curtains close to a window that is particularly wet. Mould growth inside Wardrobes and on Clothes too.  Don’t see Mould on your clothes?  Smell them, are they Musty?  All these things are caused by excessive moisture in the building.

 

Other Reasons

 

There may be other factors adding to the problem often due to Building defects, i.e. Cracks and Defective Sealants around Doors and Windows. Defective Guttering and Downpipes. High External ground levels possibly bridging Damp-Proof Courses.  Modern living has added to the problem with our obsession about sealing buildings so tightly that they cannot breathe. This lack of airflow is unhealthy.

 

Health

 

Mould Spores can cause Respiratory Problems and Infections and in extreme cases, serious illness. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE EFFECTS.

 

The Cure

 

Well the best way would be to turn the Heating Right up and open all of the Windows.  That wonderful combination of Warmth and Fresh air will guarantee a condensation free home!!  Clearly though this is totally impractical, but it gives you a picture of what is required.  Warm background heat is essential as is airflow, to maintain a healthy environment and we can supply and fit a Positive Pressure unit that WILL reduce Condensation by up to 95%.  Once fitted it is almost silent in running, unobtrusive and importantly, very cost effective.  It is maintenance free except for a filter clean once a year which we can undertake should you so wish.

 

Survey’s

 

We offer low cost Survey’s to establish exactly what is required and the cost of the Survey will be refunded should you then proceed with Remedial works. (Terms apply).
