Humidity 

Humidity contributing to mold in your home.

  1. Sometimes, humidity or dampness (water vapor) in the air can supply enough moisture for mold growth. Indoor relative humidity (RH) should be kept below 60 percent — ideally between 30 percent and 50 percent, if possible. Low humidity may also discourage pests (such as cockroaches) and dust mites.

    Humidity levels can rise in a building as a result of the use of:

    • Humidifiers
    • Steam radiators
    • Moisture-generating appliances such as dryers
    • Combustion appliances such as stoves
    • showers 
    • heat escape from the attic floor to roof deck 

     

  2. Heat escape from the living space is a big contributor to mold growth as a result of cold air from the soffits or roof vents  hitting warm air from the living space that leaked out through the attic floor seams. This is evident from the exterior when icicles are present. Often the attic sheathing ( roof deck ) will  have mold, why? because the heat escape from the living space is creating both condensation and warming of the roof deck.

Ventilation For Attic Mold Prevention

In addition to proper insulation levels, and air tight attic floor, in the attic, when passive power fan ventilation which is thermostat controlled does not remove excess heat escape from the living space the heat will prematurely melt roof snow creating a serious situation with icicles and the potential for ice dams.

FAQ

In the Chicagoland area you need to have between R-38 and R-60. Realistically, you should be at R-49 or higher.

If you live in an older home, you should have more insulation because it is likely not air sealed the same way a newer home is.

The right type of insulation to use really depends on how each home is built. If you have dropped ceilings, we can often use spray foam insulation. However in other cases blown insulation works best.

Let our insulation experts talk to you about your home and what would be best for you.

Attic insulation cost is between $1.50 and $3.50 per sq.ft. depending on the type of insulation we use, sq.ft. of the house and roof type.
