How Can I Ventilate My Home?

Ventilating Your Home - A Complete Guide

Lack of ventilation can cause a huge amount of issues for homeowners, especially those with homes that have high moisture content in some rooms which can lead to mould and condensation forming. Although there are homes that are naturally well ventilated - some just cannot be ventilated properly or lack the tools to ventilate rooms and promote airflow so action needs to be taken.

Lack of ventilation can be a headache at best but a serious health risk at worst (especially if you have family members or tenants that suffer from asthma or other breathing-related / lung-related conditions. There are a number of ways in which you can take action to increase the amount of ventilation in the home as well as take action against poor air quality with the main aspect to consider is installing a home ventilation system.

Causes of Condensation

Condensation is caused by air moisture as well as variations in temperature and the surface temperature of surfaces that may absorb or cause water droplets to form. You will likely see condensation form in areas such as bathrooms or garages where poor ventilation or constant variations in temperature cause condensation to form around the room. Different activities such as cooking, drying clothes and washing can cause hot air particles to travel to colder parts of the home which can manifest around the home and cause condensation.

In the winter - this can cause a wide range of issues due to the fact there is a lot of cold air around the home and dryers are likely being used to dry your clothes after a washing cycle. This can cause a large variation in air temperature which will lead to potential problems with condensation and mould if left untreated.

Identifying Condensation Issues

Some indications of condensation can be apparent but some are not as clear as others. Here are some common indicators or signs that you can look out for that tell you that you have a condensation problem and probably need to find a solution before the problem gets worse:

Spots of black mould on ceilings. This is more often than not found on the ceilings or walls of rooms such as your bathroom. This is because of the fact that the hot air from showers or running the bath will rise to the top of the room and without the correct ventilation - will cause condensation at the top of the roof.

-    Upon touching walls you can feel that they have become damp. Some walls may also appear damp with moisture on the surface or within the wall in rare cases.

-    Steamy windows or pools of water under window sills.
