Plan Your Home

Damp air in your home is harder to heat, and to breathe.

Campaign type:

Damp air in your home is harder to heat, and to breathe.

  • Make your home healthier by drying your washing outside, drying windows every morning, and airing your house when possible. Opening windows for 3-5 minutes in the warmest part of the day in winter (unless it’s raining) is enough.

  • Simple things like extractor fans and opening a window while you are showering, or using pot lids to contain steam while you’re cooking can make a difference.
