SUGGESTIONS TO HELP MINIMIZE THESE HUMIDITY ISSUES: Some simple undertakings which will help to achieve the proper humidity and reduce condensation
within the home and so help limit the amount migrating into the attic are as follows: (1) Set your humidifier to the recommended settings. This will vary from day to day in the Calgary area and season to season in most other areas. (2) Run the bathroom fan during bathing or showering and for at least 30 to 40 minutes after. http://ow.ly/f4o330i5B5e

HUMIDITY: Humidity is the amount of moisture or water vapor in the air. You, your family, and your pets produce moisture when you are breathing or perspire. Plants add indoor moisture. Water vapor is added to indoor air through routine household activities such as cooking baking, showering, bathing, doing laundry, and dishwashing http://ow.ly/onTm30i5B55

Checklist for reducing condensation in your home, 5. Check the internal humidity of your house. Have your furnace and humidifier set properly. You should have the correct relative humidity levels in your house. If humidity in your home is low, and you are getting zapped, you likely have inadequate humidity and to avoid condensation you must adjust the humidity down as the outside temperature falls to avoid indoor “rain” on your windows and elsewhere you may not see.http://ow.ly/8KeZ30i5B4U

Checklist for reducing condensation in your home - 4. Check to make sure the vapour barrier is properly sealed around the vents in your attic or if you see daylight at the area. You may need to add some insulation in the attic around the areas where the vents come through the ceiling. http://ow.ly/m83Z30i5B4Q
