Combatting mould and condensation in the built environment
In a changing world with energy-efficiency paramount toward solving the impact of climate change on human existence, how well are our air conditioning systems coping with condensation and mould?
Assessing the potential for condensation and mould associated with air conditioning systems should become a significant topic for every designer’s quality and safety in design review. Cool and cold zones within an air conditioning system and its building fabric envelope should be assessed for the re-emergence of occupant welfare and cost of asset management debates.
This presentation narrows a much larger debate and discusses the significance of understanding the consequences of cool and cold within our built environment, relative to the creation of a mechanically air-conditioned space.
