Condensation Risk Analysis

As we all know, air contains moisture which can condense into water droplets if conditions allow. Warmer air contains more moisture and we often see the occurrence of condensation in our everyday lives, eg. when we breathe onto a piece of cold glass. This type of condensation can also take place within the structural elements of our buildings and can have a detrimental effect on building materials, including timber and insulation.

When we insulate well, we increase this risk of condensation within our building’s structures. It is extremely important that this is considered when insulating and when designing buildings and insulation systems for buildings. Without correct design and condensation preventative measures, we run a high risk of damage to the integrity of our building’s structural elements and insulations.

 

Analysis

Condensation Risk Analysis printscreenWith our advanced software, we will look at the various materials within a structure and conditions around it that can cause condensation. We can then see if, when and where condensation may occur, before we go ahead and install insulation, etc. Therefore, we can now re-design to ensure that the risk of condensation is eliminated, before we build.

Our Condensation Risk Analysis software will look at all the contributing factors to condensation, whether it be Surface Humidity Levels or Interstitial Condensation (within a structure). Factors studied include: the insulation being installed; position of insulation; local climate; humidity levels; building occupancy; etc.
