One question we come across quite often at The Dwelling Doctors is “Why is loft ventilation so important when it comes to condensation control?” We also come across many home owners who do not realise the impact poor loft ventilation can have on condensation in their homes.
Most of the time, home owners usually only think about loft ventilation when they have an issue, not to prevent issues with condensation. When do you think about it? Perhaps when you’ve gone to get your suitcases out of the loft only to find they’re covered in mould? Or maybe you’ve noticed condensation on the roofing felt, or roof timbers etc?
If these are ringing an alarm bell to you, then you need to do something NOW!
Condensation in your loft will not only cause damage to anything you have stored up there, but it can also get inside your loft insulation reducing its effectiveness. Unfortunately, once your insulation is damp you will struggle to dry it out.
