How to eradicate condensation and mould

We like to think of ourselves as Condensation control & Mould eradication specialists as we are constantly searching manufacturers and suppliers for the latest methods and equipment to fix your condensation problems. Often we will recommend a DIY solution which may be as simple as some lifestyle changes but in severe cases mechanical intervention is the only solution.

Recently we were tasked with the installation of a Heat recovery ventilation unit to the loft of a Yeovil bungalow. Mould had plagued the property on walls and ceilings and sills had been sodden in the mornings with water running off the windows. The property had been extended from an original 1950s build and now included an en suite and utility room however even after extensive building works no extraction had been installed in any of the ‘wet’ rooms (kitchen, bathrooms).

The chosen system was an Envirovent energiSava 250, this is a heat recovery unit from which ducting is laid to all rooms and ceiling diffusers are installed. Fresh air is drawn in through an external ducted grill into the unit and at the same time air is extracted from the ‘wet’ rooms. The energy from the extracted air is used to warm the fresh air which is then delivered to all other rooms ensuring that adequate ventilation is constantly provided. Energy efficient improved indoor air quality all year round !

Condensation in its simplest form is when moist air comes into contact with colder air or a colder surface and the water contained in the air is released to form condensation in the air or on the surface. It often results in black mould growth on walls and surfaces or you can see water droplets.
