Normally off my neighbours wall Today from Asturias / Aviles weather forecast and climate chart: temperature, humidity (average/minimum/maximum) where they now go 82%

That said the humidity varies greatly within the village and thus the woodworm infestations but we don't have those anymore

As for BGAC in a bar - works in Asturias as well as it does in HK that one

Don't you use those dehumidifiers Nigele? We usually have to run one during the winter months especially in the bathrooms - and were told not to have the windows open for any longer than 10 mins really, as it lets further humidity/damp into the house.

Well I think it is more humid on the coast compared to inland but to be honest I found it more humid in central London!

Tallulah we do use a dehumidifier in the bedrooms but we find maintaining an airflow through the flat helps greatly. Yes I thought logically it might let more in but we tried it on local advice and it seems to work.

Initially we had problems in our ground floor flat with humidity and thus woodworm but over 6 years we have:

Had a drain dug (not a major excavation) and plastic mesh in the ground to ensure no excess of water runs under the building (Cost 1200 Es and the block (12) paid).
Removed nearly all wood from the flat. Made sure any left was protected and sealed.
Had the windows replaced with PVC.
Use just one humidifier for an hour or so in each bedroom each evening (after closing windows of course )

And based on how much water the dehumidifier sucks out per hour the situation is 10 times better now.

What still surprises me is how humidity issues change block to block - but even if we had known about the humidity and woodworm we wouldn't swap our vecinos for the world
