10 Ways To Avoid Condensation Build-Up
The seasons will change and every year you will notice your walls and windows trapped in condensed vapors. How does this happen? Warm air present in the atmosphere contains more water vapors than cold air. The point at which the vapors change into liquid is called the condensation or the dew point. Now, if in your building there is any surface below this temperature (dew point) the vapors will turn into liquid and condensation will build up on that surface. The answer to this problem is INSULATION.
With insulation, you make sure that all the surfaces remain above the dew point and there is no scope for condensation. Here are tips you can keep in mind while making your home condensation proof:
1. Know your building architecture well: Before you work out on how to stop condensation build-up, you must know the structure of your building very well. You must have the blueprint so that you may not miss out any important locations. Condensation build-up can take place in tiny leftover parts and spread to the rest of the area.
2. Get knowledge of the market: As you will buy insulation material to keep your home condensation proof, you need to know what all products are available in the market and which products perform the best. There are insulation products in every second shop, but not all of them have the same durability and high-performance results.
3. Choosing the right insulation: There is not just one type of insulation material available in the market. Each brand has different types of materials suitable for different areas in your house. Fiberglass will be suitable for insulating your floors and like that there are many types. But then there are a number of precautions you must consider for fiberglass installation to avoid skin irritation or respiratory irritation.
4. Pay special attention to flat roofs: Roofs are the place where you must install insulation materials. Rainwater can accumulate on the roofs, heat rises upward, overhead tanks and many such conditions make the roofs a spotted place for condensation build-up.
5. Next in line are the walls: After you successfully insulate your roof, the next surface you need to insulate is the wall. Typically, water vapors inside the house are generated from home appliances; so good ventilation in these areas is critical.
6. Floors are important too
7. Keep a track of external walls insulation
8. Crawl spaces need insulation too
9. Ventilation is key
