Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Jul2010, Vol. 82 Issue 7, p14
The article presents the real condition of an upscale urban condominium in the U.S. It notes that when water dripped from the windows, it enables molds to grow on the walls and there will be water leakage. It also mentions that the condominium units generate a lot of moisture where there is no ventilation to flush the moisture. Worst of all, the energy recovery system recovers not only heat but also moisture.
