Why do we see problems with condensation in the summertime?

During the summer months, the elevated outdoor temperatures result in increased humidity levels. As the warm air infiltrates indoor spaces, it encounters cooler surfaces, causing moisture to condense. In contrast, winter air generally contains lower humidity levels, reducing the occurrence of such condensation.

Employing a dehumidifier enables the creation of controlled winter-like conditions during summertime, ensuring a consistent climate for production purposes throughout the year.



Condensation arises when air – which almost always contains certain amounts of moisture – has a different temperature than the surfaces it comes into contact with, resulting in some of this airborne moisture appearing as condensation.

When the air gets cooler, its relative humidity rises and some of the water vapour present condenses into moisture. The more moisture there is in the air, the more likely that condensation will arise.
