Does ventilation reduce humidity?  Decreasing the humidity level in your home can make your family feel more at ease. It will also save you money by reducing the amount of air conditioning or heating you need, as well as improve the quality of your indoor air.

Humidity is the level or percentage of water in the air. With the introduction of energy-saving measures such as draught-proofing, double glazing, and cavity wall insulation, there is no natural escape route for the humid air, which is now trapped inside the home. As a result, this trapped and stale air only makes the problem worse, causing condensation on windows, walls and poor indoor air quality.

The more moisture there is in the air, the higher the humidity, and the more likely it is that you will get condensation.

Humidity Problems

The most common cause of damp in the home is condensation dampness, which is caused by elevated humidity levels and moisture in the air. Excess moisture that builds up on walls and ceilings in your home can also lead to the growth of moulds, fungi and bacteria, which subsequently emit spores and volatile organic compounds into the indoor air.

Exposure to condensation damp and mould growth is clinically associated with respiratory problems, allergies, asthma and immunological reactions. Dampness has therefore been suggested to be a strong and consistent indicator of risk for asthma and respiratory problems.

Excessive condensation caused by high humidity can affect the structural integrity of your home.
