- clear, detailed recommended practices for all United States climates
- practices for cooling as well as heating climates (often, heating climate solutions are applied in cooling climates, where problems and solutions are completely different)
- an overall, systematic view of moisture problems?including how mechanical systems and occupant lifestyles can create and also resolve moisture problems
- actual case studies of buildings with moisture problems that illustrate the principles and practices presented in the book
This detailed, no–nonsense exploration of moisture cause and effect?as well as its protection and remediation?will expand readers’ knowledge on this crucial subject. Moisture Control Handbook will be welcomed by building contractors, architects, mechanical engineers, building science researchers, building product manufacturers, homeowners, and small commercial building owners.
