What is condensation?

Condensation occurs when damp air comes into contact with cooler air, or a colder surface. The water is unable to retain the same amount of moisture, which results in the moisture turning into water.

What can you do to minimise condensation?

 dry clothes outdoors. If you have to dry clothes indoors, dry them on a clothes airer in the bathroom with the door closed and a window slightly open

 vent tumble driers to the outside (never into the home), unless it is the self-condensing type

 cover pans when cooking

 take a shower rather than a bath

 if you see water visible on your windows, wipe it off as soon as possible

 open windows slightly to allow the warm air to vacate the property
