Do the large conservatory windows always steam up in winter? Do you think simply wiping it away will solve the problem? One moment! It’s not that easy, because wet glass is always a warning sign that air humidity levels are too high. That is not good – because with humidity comes a risk of mould growth, even in the conservatory!

The cause of steamed up window panes is usually bad insulation and thermal bridges, as well as a large amount of water, which is released into the air by the plants in your conservatory. As soon as the maximum saturation level in the air is reached, the warm and moist air in the room gathers on cold surfaces, such as the panes of glass in the conservatory. The moisture in the air condenses and the windows cloud over and become wet. In principle, it is of course better to have condensation on a window pane than on a brick wall, for example, because on brick mould forms much more easily. But with the water running down the window, there is a risk of mould forming in the window seals.

Dehumidifiers stop mould – and allergies

As soon as the mould spores spread from the conservatory to the rest of the house, there is a risk of allergic reactions and even infections in people with weakened immune systems. So when mould spores appear, you must fight the problem resolutely, for example, by reaching for one of our dehumidifiers. If the glass is poorly insulated, our dehumidifiers admittedly cannot stop windows steaming up altogether, but they can prevent the moisture from getting into walls and causing mould formation there.
