Surface condensation and mould affect about 15 percent of the UK housing stock. This paper reports BRE studies in occupied dwellings on the effectiveness in various situations of a range of remedial measures, which included improvements to thermal insulation and heating, and the provision of extractor fans and dehumidifiers. The flats and 2-storey houses involved were all of traditional construction with brick walls and pitched roofs. The results are incorporated in a recently published BRE package of practical guidance; this article outlines significant factors revealed by the field studies.
