Hosted by Onset, and presented by Lonnie Haughton, principal construction and codes consultant with Richard Avelar & Associates, this webinar discusses a recent project where 100 Onset HOBO® temperature and relative humidity data loggers were used to identify unexplained causes of moisture damage, wood decay, and fungal growth in the walls of a wood-framed apartment complex.

Ideal for facility managers, building owners, and energy managers and consultants, webinar participants will learn:

  •     The humidity ratio (i.e., the ambient moisture load) is a function of temperature and relative humidity
  •     Temperature and humidity loggers can be deployed for long-term monitoring of the constantly-changing humidity ratio within exterior wall cavities
  •     Collected data can be easily evaluated and used by investigators to guide their forensic processes
