I installed MVHR and it has completely stopped condensation in my home

Whether you’re a self builder or renovator, it’s likely given the current energy crisis that energy efficiency will be high on the priority list for your home. This has always been the case for me too, and upon installing MVHR in my home it became an unexpected solution for removing condensation.  

Before embarking on the extension and renovation of our property —  where we have lived as a family for about nine years — during each winter there would be lots of humidity and moisture on the inside of the windows. Inevitably they would need ongoing cleaning and redecoration due to the moisture damage as well as the use of many chemical products to mitigate mould growth.
