Remote Temperature and Humidity Monitoring

Temperature and humidity monitoring is a testing technique that provides information about the pre-existing (baseline) and ongoing condition in the room or building being diagnosed. The collected data, in combination with other tests, helps FOAM-TECH technicians to make informed decisions about where and how to insulate a building.

Temperature monitoring is often done in an attic to assess ice-damming problems. Ice damming is a temperature-based problem that can only occur if a certain differential in temperature exists between the exterior and the attic.

Humidity monitoring is often done in a basement, crawl space or other high-moisture environment. Monitoring humidity is useful for diagnosing rot, mold, and mildew problems in a building.

Temperature and humidity monitoring can be as low-tech as taking the room temperature on a regular basis, or as high-tech as setting up an ISAAC monitoring computer to automatically collect and record data.
