Loft insulation can help reduce the risk of condensation, but it may not entirely eliminate it. Insulation works by creating a thermal barrier, preventing warm air from escaping and reducing temperature differences between indoor and outdoor surfaces. This can minimise the occurrence of condensation on cooler surfaces.
However, condensation can still occur if there are other contributing factors, such as excessive moisture present or inadequate ventilation. Insulation alone cannot address these issues. Proper ventilation is crucial in allowing moisture-laden air to escape and fresh air to circulate, helping to control humidity levels and prevent damp problems from developing.
