AbstractThis report gives an interesting case history of a troublesome condensation condition which was successfully corrected by simple measures. Condensation problems are common in Canadian buildings because of low winter temperatures and occur whenever indoor relative humidities exceed the limits set by the temperatures of the inside surfaces of the building enclosure. Indoor relative humidities are frequently maintained at levels which cause condensation by unsuspected moisture sources such as were provided in this case by the greenhouses attached to the building.
