Especially at times during the winter, condensation can be a real problem for home-owners up and down the country.
Why is This a Problem?
Condensation can often be the first step towards mould. In many cases it is condensation on the wall which feeds mould and keeps it alive and growing.
Where Does Condensation Come From?
Condensation forms when there is excess moisture in the air. When the wall is cold enough and the air is saturated with the moisture like in bathrooms, kitchen the moisture will start to condensate on the wall making it wet and damp.
Conditions such as these are ideal for mould to take hold.
How Do I Combat the Condensation?
The answer is a good ventilation when humidity rises above certain level. Ideal for the purpose is humidistat extractor fan. This device will detect automatically excess of moisture in the air and will start ventilation process automatically.
The humidity controlled fan systems permit homes to be ventilated automatically whether you are home or not. Security is maintained as no window need to be left open.
Kitchen & Bathroom Solutions
In your kitchen and bathroom you may have a humidity controlled fan system installed. This is an extractor fan controlled by electric humidistat. It will go off when you cook or having a shower.
Air contains unseen water and the humidistat constantly checks how much. At pre-set level the humidistat will automatically switch on the fan to extract the unwanted air borne water. It will automatically switch off when it has vented the moisture.
Most water is produced in the kitchen and bathroom and your humidistat controlled fans would be installed there. You will see your fan comes on when you wash up, cook, bathe etc. Neither the humidistat nor the fan require you to operate them to work, they control themselves 24 hours a day all year round.
