Welcome to Loughview condensation and home ventilation solutions

Over the last number of years with the big increase in building standards for insulation and air tightness so as to meet the new building regulation to conserve fuel and energy. We now have the benefits of warmer homes but we have seen a huge rise in problems with condensation and mould growth.

What was once considered a problem for old houses with stone walls and single glazing is now a problem for many new home owners.

Condensation in the home usually forms between the months of October and April and is a sign of high humidity in the house. If left unchecked this will not only lead to the growth of mould but can cause interstitial condensation which is condensation within the structure of the walls and ceilings. This can lead to very expensive repair bills and damage to the house structure.

 

The solution is correct ventilation of fresh dry outside air at the correct rate

Not only is condensation and mould growth unsightly, it is a sign of very humid and bad air quality in your home. Dust mites thrive in humid conditions and along with mould spores are known allergens for asthma attacks. Also with poor ventilation you have the build op of volatile organic compounds (VOC). VOCs are found within many consumer products including household cleaning products and aerosols. They are also present within the fabric of the building such as in adhesives, solvents and treatments. VOCs can cause tiredness, headaches, allergic reactions, respiratory problems and other illnesses.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air. We spend 70% to 90% of our time indoors so it is not hard to see why the world health organisation see indoor air quality as a major cause of restpitory and other illness in humans. Let us find the reasons for your condensation and mould growth problems and give you the solution.
