Prevent Mould – Solar Humidity Control – Stop Condensation
As outlined under Reduce Mould, Mustiness, Mildew, Dampness on the Solar Ventilation website, it is of utmost importance to keep your home or work environment fresh and dry by exercising humidity control in order to maintain a healthy indoor environment to prevent mould, asthma and allergy symptoms from developing.
The above council website provide valuable background information into what causes mustyness and mould problems – and how to stop condensation, prevent mould and secure a dry home.
The council recommends low level heating for reducing condensation on windows etc. combined with ventilation to remove moisture before droplets form condensation on windows and other cold surfaces.
Mould Prevention & Moisture control
Moisture control is the to mould control.

Natural Solar Ventilation assists you in humidity control and provides asthma relieve as well as reduced risk for developing allergies and other respiratory problems by reducing dust mites and mould growth.
Other SAM benefits include:
- Mould prevention
- Mildew prevention
- Reduced condensation on windows
- Reduced dampness
- Reduced mustiness
- Moisture control
- Remove moisture
- Acts a dehumidifier
Dehumidify with the SAM Solar Dehumidifier for a Dry Home
The most common method to reducing humidity and prevent mould and mustiness in homes is to purchase a dehumidifier to dehumidify the home. However conventional dehumidifiers are expensive to operate and must be emptied regularly. A solar ventilator integrated with a solar air collector will dehumidify the home and provide all the same benefits as a conventional dehumidifier, but without any ongoing cost, no electricity usage and no carbon emissions! Using SAM as a Solar dehumidifier is free – once installed) and sustainable, whilst also proving healthy living and asthma relieve. Dehumidify your home with SAM.
- Direct Heat Contribution – Solar Air Heating System
- Increasing the efficiency of existing heating systems
- Lowering the temperature required to feel comfortable
Solar air heating introduces fresh warm and dry air to the home, which reduces the moisture content – and prevents or reduces the risk of mould and mildew developing, which in turn improves the indoor air quality and ensures healthy living.
