Con­trol­ling mois­ture build-up

Matamata Chronicle - - Advertising Feature -

Mois­ture ac­cu­mu­lates in the house from peo­ple bathing, show­er­ing, cook­ing, breath­ing, and wa­ter­ing plants.

It also comes into a home from out­side.

Some ap­pli­ances, such as un­vented gas heat­ing, clothes dry­ers, dish­wash­ers and wash­ing ma­chines also pro­duce ex­cess mois­ture into the air.

The mois­ture builds up quickly and is worse in mod­ern homes which are built to be al­most air­tight.

On cold days you can see the mois­ture when it col­lects on the win­dows as con­den­sa­tion.
