What Causes Condensation?
A common route of condensation is caused by the ever improving standards or insulations, double glazing and draught proofing in properties. These installations boast obvious benefits in their retention of heat; however it can result in poor air ventilation, stale air, and trapped moisture. Over time this lack of ventilation can result in unhealthy living conditions.
The signs of condensation include; water collecting on your windows, water on your window sills, tiles and walls, black mould growth, peeling decorations and musty damp smells.
How We Can Fix Condensation Problems
We have a full range of anti-condensation units that can be fitted into the loft space or fixed onto the external walls. This improves air quality by removing the excessive moisture laden air. Passive core vents can also be fitted for increased ventilation.
Another solution combines the fitting of an anti-condensation unit with thermal plaster-boarding, which saves on heating bills. This can be fitted internally or externally and is a great benefit for older properties.
