Tightly air-sealed, well-insulated buildings combined with energy-efficient HVAC systems and increased ventilation rates are key components of a comfortable and healthy high-performance home. But, unfortunately, no good deed goes unpunished. The Era of Actively Controlling Moisture has begun, and traditional methods will no longer effectively meet the new moisture demands. We will discuss the building science perspective on the “new normal” and the challenges we now must face in order to deal with these effectively.

Nikki Krueger has been in the indoor air quality industry for over 20 years. She is a RESNET certified home energy rater, a member of the ACCA Manual Low Load Homes (LLH) Advisory Committee, and a member of the Resource Efficiency and Indoor Environment Quality task group for the 2024 NGBS Standards update. She educates and trains builders, HVAC contractors, architects, engineers, crawl space contractors, and other professionals in the industry on the building science of ventilation and moisture control in buildings.
Learning Objective 1:
Understand how the building’s flow of energy, heat, air, and moisture will affect the indoor environment.
Learning Objective 2:
Be able to recommend the most effective strategies for controlling indoor moisture levels.
Learning Objective 3:
Understand how new residential energy efficiency building codes are driving the need for dedicated dehumidification and mechanical ventilation.
Learning Objective 4:
Know why traditional moisture control and ventilation strategies are no longer acceptable and will result in uncomfortable, unhealthy and potential unsafe homes.
