The window in B's room was covered in water on a morning and the windowsill was a puddle. So after much investigating I bought a dehumidifer.
I got one that removes 12 litres every 24 hours at the maximum humidity levels. Put it on last night and this morning the 2 litre tank in the bottom of it was full I have put it back on and also hung the washing up in there
Apparently if you have high humidity levels in the hosue it can also make the house 'feel' colder? I don't know how that works.
Has anyone else got one?

My parents had one for a bedroom that had bad mould/damp it worked wonders for the wet walls, it's surprising how fast they fill up! It did make that room warmer but I am guessing it's because it takes all the moisture out of the air? So it appears warmer! Hope it sorts your problem out :)

His wondow this morning had no condensation on it and there was only a bit on the windowsill so def made a difference. Over the summer I cleaned all the carpets in every room so without meanign to I made the house a reservoir of water absoprtion and B's room is the coldest unfortunately. This morning his room was 17 degrees and everyone elses was 13 BUT he had an eletcronic device on in his room overnight so not much of a surprise really.

I've often thought about buying one as our house is a nightmare !! Which one did you buy? I've been using the disposable ones from the £1 shop but no idea why but the ones I bought this time have collected nothing!! Really don't know why!!

I was doing that too trayloub! I even put a tray on salt on his windowsill forgetting that the cats jump up there and would knock it over I googled and googled. I think it is ebac that is portrayed as being the best and then there was another type that seemed to have complaint after complaint about it so was avoiding that. So eventually went for B&Q Blyss range (that is their own make). Thinking that if it did go wrong it is easy to take it back to B&Q. I then spent ages trying which one to go for! As they have a tiny one (300ml) to a massive one (28l) and then from that choose one to suit our needs. In an ideal world I would ahve bought the most expesnive one
