Ways to Ventilate Your Home

If you want to avoid common household problems such as condensation, damp and mould, it is essential that you have adequate ventilation in your home. This ventilation helps to remove the excess moisture in the air, which would otherwise hit the surfaces in your home and cause condensation. Here are some ways that you can ventilate your home!

Open windows and doors

One the quickest and easiest ways to ventilate your home is to open windows and doors, which will allow cold air to circulate the room. This is especially important when you are carrying out tasks involving steam, such as cooking or showering. If you find that it is cold to ventilate your property all at once, open the windows in one room and keep the doors firmly closed.

Turn on extractor fans

When you are cooking or showering, you should also think about turning on extractor fans if possible. Like opening windows and doors, this will help to circulate fresh air so that the steam produced does not linger on your walls, ceilings and floors.

Invest in a dehumidifier

If you find that it is too cold to open windows over the coming months, you should think about investing in a dehumidifier. These units reduce the humidity and moisture in the air, which provide benefits for both your home and your health. For a short term fix during the winter months, dehumidifiers are ideal for keeping condensation at bay.
