How to avoid Condensation!

Produce less moisture: Reduce the potential for Condensation by producing less water:

  • Always cook with pan lids on and turn down the heat once the water has boiled.
  • Only use the minimum amount of water to cook vegetables.
  • Never dry laundry on radiators.
  • Dry washing outdoors if possible or put it in a bathroom with the door closed and the window open and the extractor fan on.
  • Extractor Fans should be automatically humidistat controlled-not soley activated by a light switch.
  • If you use a tumble dryer, make sure it is vented to the outside (DIY kits are available for this) or that the tumble dryer is of the low condensing type.
  • Don't use your gas cooker to heat your kitchen as it produces moisture when burning gas (You will notice the windows steam up).
  • Never use bottled gas heaters (calor etc) as they produce about 8 pints of moisture from an average size bottle size.
  • When filling a bath, run the cold water first then add the hot - it will reduce the steam which leads to condensation by up to 90%.
