“Moisture Control and Insulation Systems in Buildings, Chilled Water Pipes and Underground Pipes: A Guide for Architects, Engineers, Contractors, ... Construction Professionals and Homeowners” by William A. Lotz, P.E., shows readers how to deal with moisture problems through the use of proper insulation systems in buildings and their components (for instance, roofs, walls, attics, heating/ventilation/air conditioning systems, etc.), as well as in chilled water pipes and underground pipes. And this is totally possible through the use of the right insulation system.
The proper insulation system will not only prevent condensation, rot, rust and energy loss, but will also contribute to the durability of all the building and construction components. In this book, readers will discover the basics of moisture control in an easy-to-understand manner through real life moisture problems that the author himself has been through, and managed to solve.
Not only does Lotz write about his extensive moisture control experience with 2,000 buildings and projects, but also conveys the moisture control facts in a forthright, solution-oriented, jargon-free language. This language can be grasped by all building professionals including architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers, building inspectors, and specifiers. Even homeowners will find solutions to their moisture problems.
Lotz has a professional Engineer’s license in eight states and regularly writes technical articles. He has published more than 300 technical articles, mostly on heating, ventilation and air conditioning, insulation and moisture issues. He is also a fellow and life member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
