Eliminating Humidity and Condensation Problems in University Dormitories: Case Study.

Web Abstract: 
Presents the investigation and follow-up efforts that identified reasons and corrective measures for high humidity levels in the living areas of two Texas A&M dormitories. The paper describes how the dormitories were affected by excessive humidity by verifying design and existing HVAC systems, diagnosing humidity problems, and then recommending continuous commissioning measures implemented to deal with these problems. High humidity was attributed to largely to excess infiltration of unconditioned outside air, and to lack of effective airflow pathways within the buildings.
