Advice on condensation in the home

Ventilation

It is important to allow plenty of fresh air into your home to avoid the indoor air becoming stale and humid, leading to unhealthy conditions

To maximise ventilation in your home:

  • Always keep a small window ajar or a vent open when someone is in the room - it is best to keep vents open all the time
  • After a bath or shower, open the bathroom window for a while until the steam has cleared or use the extractor fan
  • When cooking, close the kitchen door and open a window or use the extractor fan
  • Do not switch off or tamper with any ventilation equipment provided in your home
