Back9.18.3.1.(2)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F62

To facilitate the dissipation of water and moisture from the building.

Objective:

OH1.1

 

APPLICATION:

Ventilation of unheated, naturally ventilated crawl spaces whose exterior walls have less than 25% of their total area above exterior ground level open to the outdoors, in buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9].

INTENT:

To limit the probability of inadequate ventilation capacity in crawl spaces, which could lead to inadequate ventilation, which could lead to high relative humidity and the accumulation of moisture.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • the generation of pollutants from biological growth or from materials that become unstable on wetting, or
  • deterioration, which could lead to compromised integrity of environmental separators or of elements protected by the separators.
This is to limit the probability of negative effects on the air quality of indoor spaces, which could lead to harm to persons.
