Condensation control for new homes
Condensation is defined as the process where water in the air transforms into liquid water when warm air comes into contact with a cold surface below the “dew point”. The dew point is a temperature which varies depending on the temperature and humidity of the warm air. A simple demonstration of this is the water droplets that form on the surface of a bottle of a cold drink on a hot day. The hot air hits the surface of the bottle which may be at around 6°C and the water in the air condensates on the bottle.
