You might be one of these people and desperate to find a solution to the problem.
You’d be wise doing this as the more condensation occurs and isn’t treated, the more it increases the chances of mould and mildew forming.
Once that happens, it can be harmful to your health, potentially causing e.g. respiratory problems, skin irritations.
Visual can advise on how to make condensation less of an issue:
Improve your ventilation
With your radiators turned on, the washing machine whirring, the kettle boiling etc. there can be a very humid atmosphere in your house in winter.
This doesn’t help and you need to lower the humidity level, which you can do very simply – just open some windows in the most humid areas.
You can put your extractor fan to use if you have one in a kitchen or bathroom, whenever it’s hot in them.
Dry your washing outdoors
Who knows what the weather will do this winter? If there’s a nice dry and warmish day, use it to your advantage and hang your washing to dry on the washing line.
It’s better to do this than put it in the tumble dryer or place clothing on your radiators as that can cause excess humidity and moisture.
You’ll save money not using your heating to dry clothes and also be doing your bit for the environment.
Keep your heating low
Condensation is the phenomenon that occurs when warm air collides with the cold glass in a window.
With that in mind, it’s always best to have your heating on at a comfortable low level and keep it there for however long you need it on.
Constantly fiddling around with the temperature and turning it off and on won’t help with condensation.
When all of this advice doesn’t seem to make a bit of difference, the only solution then is to replace your current windows, as they’re very obviously to blame.
