You might think that you have no choice but to live with the dampness that forms on your windows and doors, especially if you live in a colder climate. Yet there is no need for you to accept this as an inevitable part of life. With some simple steps you can easily learn how to stop condensation which could also be causing damp damage to other areas of the home.
You should never neglect the importance of dealing with excess moisture in the home as it can lead to mould. Homes that have downlights are also at risk of condensation if loft insulation has not been placed over the light fittings due to fire risk concerns. A lack of insulation or examples of insulation being pulled back to allow for downlights can lead to cold spots and damp in kitchens and bathrooms, for example. Consider Downlight Covers to rectify this issue. What are downlight covers? They are essentially hoods that provide protection to the light and mean that insulation can be properly applied.
Condensation forms because of a number of factors, not least the amount of moisture in the air. If you have old double glazed windows that are failing, you will notice condensation building up as the collision of warm and cold air is no longer being separated effectively. You may find that you’re having to leave windows open or even purchase a dehumidifier. Replacing windows and adding insulation can greatly improve this problem.
