How to improve ventilation – Tip 2

Tip 2. Dry the laundry outside.

We’re all guilty of doing the laundry and drying the clothes inside, and there are a number of legitimate reasons for that. We can blame it on the unpredictable weather, or blame it on the very unpredictable weather (especially in winter). However, drying wet clothes inside our homes creates condensation and prevents your heating system from working efficiently. It also accelerates condensation and mould growth in winter.

To solve this problem, it’s always better to dry your clothes at a covered outdoor area, such as under a patio cover or canopy, so your clothes can dry while staying out of range of rain. If drying laundry inside is the only option you have, make sure your windows are open to allow the excess moisture to escape.
