Condensation and excessively hot daysby Pro-Tech Team on 06/20/12
At this time of the year and especially on days like today
when the temp. is 96 degrees many are tempted to open their basement windows
with the thought of airing out their basement.
This is one of the worst things that can be done because all it does is
increase the amount of humidity in the basement and creates condensation.
The best thing that one can do is keep the windows and doors to the basement closed and keep that dehumidifier operating at about 40% R H. This will help to minimize the condensation buildup that is naturally trying to occur.
