Pagination or Media Count:
This publication sets forth design criteria for avoiding and solving moisture problems in airconditioned buildings in humid climates. These moisture problems span a broad spectrum notably 1 Mold and mildew on exterior building surfaces. 2 Peeling, blistering, flaking and bleeding of paint on both exterior and interior surfaces, 3 Interior odor, 4 Uncomfortably high levels of interior humidity, 5 Property damage resulting from condensation in and on building walls and roof, 6 Insulating losses resulting from condensation in building walls and roof. Remedies for these conditions sometimes demand drastic changes from normal architectural and mechanical design practices used for colder, drier climates. Solutions to moisture problems in humid climates often entail a reversal of normal design practice.
