What causes condensation?

You are producing moisture all the time, simply by breathing.

Day to day activities produce the following amounts of condensation in your home:

  • Two people = 3 pints
  • Cooking = 6 pints
  • Having a bath or shower = 2 pints
  • Drying clothes = 9 pints

The three main causes of condensation are:

  1. Too much moisture in the air
  2. Not enough ventilation
  3. Difference in temperature
