Since none of us can afford to just pop the heating on now, we are having to find alternative ways of ridding the house of dampness and mould. 

So let’s jump in and explore 5 alternative ways that you can get rid of mould and condensation in 2023. 

Secondary Glazing

Secondary glazing is a smart investment for any homeowner this winter. We could write all day about the benefits of secondary glazing but here’s a quick overview:

  • A reduction in heat loss 
  • The elimination of cold draughts 
  • Better sound insulation 
  • Reduced condensation 
  • Increased home security 

With all of these key benefits, how could you not want to get it installed? You can keep your home warmer, and get rid of that pesky condensation.


The sales of dehumidifiers have shot up since the cold season began, and I myself have invested in one recently. 

A dehumidifier works to remove moisture from the air in your home, thus leaving condensation in the dehumidifier, for you to empty down the sink. 

This helps to eliminate that damp feeling in your home and gets rid of condensation and dampness. Not only this, but it makes your clothes a heck of a lot easier to dry. 

Open up Those Windows

Okay… maybe not if it's -9 degrees outside. But, if you can in any way, open up your windows! The ventilation will help to prevent condensation from forming on your windows. 

Have Your Heat on a Really Low Setting… Always 

Some people see the most benefit from having their heat on, just really low and for a long time. This technique will help to balance out the air temperature, preventing the frequent change from hot and cold. However, you obviously need to weigh up the pros and cons of this and decide if it will be worth the heating bill.

Keep Doors and Curtains Open at Night 

This ultimately helps to ventilate your home, much like keeping the window open would. By keeping your curtains open, you’re letting more air into the room, and preventing the build-up of condensation.
