Condensation in buildings has become a concern, as thermal insulation is increased to improve energy efficiency. European standards for assessing condensation risk focus on winter conditions. Simplified psychrometrics used in the European steady-state condensation risk-assessment standard make it unsuited to warm humid Australian climates. The American standard can be used in warm humid regions, as it has been designed to accommodate locations such as Florida and Hawaii. Water vapour transmission data for Australian building materials, based on tests at in-service temperature and humidity conditions, are needed. Australia needs a standard for assessing condensation risk in buildings to establish a consensus on appropriate input data and analysis and assessment procedures for conducting hygrothermal analyses of Australian construction.
