To prevent condensation in the winter time the only effective method is to achieve the correct balance between heat and ventilation within your home. Whilst opening windows will help to achieve some air change, the heat loss that results often ends up being counter productive in the battle to preventing condensation and is certainly not helpful in preserving indoor heat.
Mechanical ventilation installed correctly is the best method to permanently achieve a drier healthier home but unless carried out correctly can actually be counter productive in keeping homes warm.
The objective of this website is to provide you (the homeowner, builder, designer or architect) with information on the numerous ways to ventilating the home so that you can achieve the best indoor air quality and maintain the highest level of energy efficiency.
We want everyone to realise that a healthy home cannot be achieved without consistent air change and that heating and insulation are only two of the three elements that must be present.
