July 13, 2007, Newsletter Issue #72: Controlling Condensation

Tip of the Week

Need to get rid of condensation? No sweat. The first step is to insulate the water pipes. Also, make sure you keep your basement well-ventilated. Sunlight and free air movement can quickly dry out a basement, except when the weather outside is hot and humid. Keep your windows closed hot, humid weather or long rainy spells. Why? The outside air will most likely contain more moisture than the basement air. If you don't want to open your windows to the summer heat, use air conditioning or dehumidifiers to keep the air cool and dry. Heat the basement during the winter. Follow this simple advice and you'll have a sweat-free basement all year round.
