Air conditioning / dehumidifiers

Afternoon all,

I have a 3 bedroom flat with double glazed windows and hard floors with under-floor water heating. Last winter condensation would form along the bottom of the windows and large patches of mould along the sides (particularly in one area where it is starting to damage the paint). I'd rather avoid the same happening this year but I see it's already starting.

The flat is constantly warm (for reasons unknown) and humid (also for reasons unknown) despite using the kitchen sparingly, and the only other water source is the bathroom which has a fan.

I guess it's getting to the point where I'll need to get an airconditioner and/or dehumidifier (is it possible to get a unit that does both - cooling in summer and dehumidifying in winter?) but before I do I wanted to see if any of you have any advice... it's a good few hundred dollars up front and probably the same again every year in energy.

Sam
