As well as heating your home, simple steps can be taken to guard against excessive condensation, which could lead to mould over the cold winter months. If possible, dry your washing outside when you can. 

If you have to dry your washing inside, use a clothes airier and keep the door closed and window open. Make sure rooms are well ventilated and keep vents on UPVC windows open or open your windows briefly each day. 

Using extractor fans when bathing or cooking can prevent condensation building up and keeping your home at a constant warm temperature will also help.
