Condensation

An average family produces over 2 gallons of moisture every day. This moisture needs to escape.

Mould forms where condensation cannot dry out so your home needs fresh air as well as heat to help dry out surfaces. All households can suffer from condensation but there are simple ways of controlling it. Find out more on condensation.

Legionella

Domestic hot and cold water systems can provide an environment where legionella bacteria may grow. This can cause ‘Legionnaires’ Disease’ - a potentially serious form of pneumonia, together with other less severe health conditions. These are all caused by inhalation of very small droplets (aerosol) of contaminated water containing legionella bacteria. With a few simple controls the risk of ill health is extremely low. Find out how to prevent Legionella.
