Condensation on your windows is not only a nuisance, it can also cause damage to your property if left unchecked.
From cooking to drying laundry to using central heating, there are many reasons why moisture accumulates in the home, leading to condensation that can build up overnight on windows. From moving houseplants to opening windows, we have a look at a few ways to help fix your condensation problem.
How to stop condensation on windows in the morning
The fastest way to reduce night-time condensation is to ventilate your home. It may feel contrary to letting cold air into your home in winter, while, you’re aiming to keep the house warm with the central heating, but opening a window will allow improved airflow around your home to keep humidity at bay.
Keeping your window slightly open through the night will release warm, damp air from your home and give you a good chance of getting rid of condensation on windows. Use trickle vents and lock features to keep your window secure while allowing air to circulate the room.
Move your plants
Many people have found joy in houseplants and the organic flare they can bring to any room in the home, but plants are a major contributor to moisture in the air.
Moving plants to rooms that are regularly ventilated, for example, hallways and kitchens or near a back door, will help flush moisture from your home. Also, try to avoid having large clusters of houseplants in one area to help reduce condensation.
