Back9.19.1.3.(3)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F51

To maintain appropriate air and surface temperatures.

F62

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

Objective:

OH1.1, OH1.2, OH1.3

 

APPLICATION:

Installation of insulation in attic or roof spaces, where insulation is installed above the ceiling and below the roof sheathing, 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:
  • restricted air flow through the vented space, or
  • excessive air flow through the insulation, which could lead to reduced thermal resistance.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • condensation,
  • the accumulation of moisture, or
  • the formation of ice dams on sloped roofs.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • the ingress of water, or
  • compromised thermal performance of components intended to provide resistance to heat transfer.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • an inadequate control of the temperature of interior spaces or relative humidity,
  • the generation of pollutants from biological growth or from materials that become unstable on wetting, or
  • deterioration, which could lead to compromised integrity of ceilings acting as environmental separators.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • negative effects on the air quality of indoor spaces,
  • the inadequate thermal comfort of persons, and
  • contact with moisture.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.
