Retrofitting existing buildings to improve energy efficiency & comfort has the potential to resolve or mitigate moisture issues but also to create problems or exacerbate existing ones. The implications for the building fabric can range from reduced thermal performance to dramatic structural failures. Humid and damp conditions can adversely effect occupant health. The consequences can range from merely annoying to life-threatening.
