The project addresses emerging moisture management and condensation risk in Australian buildings. The potential moisture damage to homes is on a national scale and has been identified with increased standards for home insulation. The energy-efficiency gains from increased thermal insulation cannot be realised without adequate moisture management, as the performance of most insulation is compromised by dampness.
When #retrofitting a #home to save #energy and lower #carbon #emissions knowing your #climate zone and best approach is key.
