Who can solve my home's moisture problem?
November 3, 2013 2:51 PM Subscribe
I have an unusual house, a winterized cabin that's fairly tightly sealed but with a crawl space beneath and no attic (cathedral ceilings). The whole space is heated with one propane stove, the kind with the fake logs and real flames, which is quite nice; a large ceiling fan on the second floor helps move the air around. I have had moisture problems -- condensation on all windows in the winter, mildew growing on certain furniture, books, shoes, etc. for the entire time I've lived here, but it seems like it's been getting slowly worse. Given my unusual HVAC set-up, what kind of specialist should I call to diagnose the problem? I know I could just buy a dehumidifier but I'd rather get to the heart of the problem.
