Too much condensation is something that needs to be dealt with as it’s no good for your windows, and in some instances, it’s also no good for your health.
Once your windows develop mildew and mould, and you’re exposed to it, it increases your chances of getting respiratory problems and things like skin irritation, if you suffer from allergies.

Keep your heating on low
Several energy suppliers are raising their prices next month, making it important not to overuse your heating.
To make condensation less of a menace, put your heating on a low temperature that feels comfortable and don’t change it, where possible.
It won’t help the situation if you are regularly turning your heating up and down.
