AbstractThis investigation of surface condensation was prompted by complaints received at the local CMHC office in Hull from the tenants of a 1 1/2-storey, basementless, Type H-12 house. Although the case appeared to be an isolated one, it was considered advisable to make a study of the contributory factors, in view of the seriousness of condensation problems experienced in similar houses on the prairies (see DBR R-16). Furthermore, the surface condensation problem in the west had occurred in houses insulated with Type 1 Alfol while this complaint involved a house insulated with 2-inch rock wool batts.
