Moisture Control – Increasing the Impact of Your Insulation

Controlling moisture in your home has a wide range of benefits. Not only does practical moisture control help prevent mold and mildew, but it also enhances your insulation and air sealing.

Understanding Residential Moisture Control

Controlling moisture can make your home more energy-efficient, less costly to heat and cool, more comfortable, and prevent mold growth.

Properly controlling moisture in your home will improve the effectiveness of your air sealing and insulation efforts, and these efforts in turn will help control moisture. The best strategies for controlling moisture in your home depend on your climate and how your home is constructed. Proper ventilation should also be part of your efforts to control moisture.

Before you decide on a moisture control strategy, it helps to understand that moisture or water vapor moves in and out of a home in a variety of ways including:

  • With air movement
  • By diffusion through materials
  • By heat transfer
  • Creating moisture within the home (cooking, showering, etc.)
