Just say, “You clearly have a moisture problem.” I’m sure you’ve seen this condition, water seems to be either leaking from or forming on the air supply register in the ceiling. Why do we have a moisture problem? Most often it’s because we’re adding water to the indoor air space. We know that water is tricky. It can enter the space as a vapor or a liquid. Once it’s inside - if the space is too cold, you’ll have a moisture driver from the outside. The risk of having the thermostat set point really low is the risk you’ll drive the inside temp below dew point. So what can you do about it? Well - there are a lot of things you can do. I follow Bryan Orr, an HVAC Professional in Orlando, Florida. The name of the Podcast is The HVAC School Podcast. Here’s a short sample of his show, listen to Bryon talk about the “M” word. You don’t have to say Mold or Mildew, just say..."You clearly have a moisture problem." Bryan's Podcast on iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/hvac-school-for-techs-by-techs/id1155660740?mt=2

Are you breathing dead rat? Gross huh. I don't think we need too much more information that would discourage a homeowner to not want to enter the attic - or consider thinking about going up to the attic space. It's unsafe, dirty and often poorly lite. The stairways are often broken and the heat in an attic is unbearable in the south. So...home sellers beware - don't be too surprised to find a laundry list of issues that need repair. Inspectors typically find poor maintenance - especially if the heating/cooling equipment and water heating equipment are stored in the attic. There is hope - follow some of our tips and/or email your maintenance questions to [email protected] Find these helpful hings from today's show: Joist-Mate http://www.dependonpremier.com/files/sales_sheets/JOIST-MATE_Attic_Safety_Platform.pdf Slip Resistant Tape https://amzn.to/2IBGk4U The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2003-144/ OSHA: Confined Space Publication https://www.osha.gov/Publications/OSHA3914.pdf OSHA: Confined Space in Construction https://www.osha.gov/confinedspaces/index.html YouTube: www.youtube.com/TodaysHomeInspector iTunes: www.bit.ly/THIPodcast SoundCloud: www.soundcloud.com/TodaysHomeInspector
