Freezing lines can be caused by a low refrigerant charge, poor flow across coil as a result of lack of airflow, and a failing condenser unit.

  • Moisture Ventilation

    According to the 2012 IRC (international residential code) bathroom fans should be vented to the exterior of the building.
    In New England not venting to the exterior would lead to a condensation issue with potential roof deck degradation and mold issues.
    So far in Georgia I have seen many bath fans vented directly to the attic with no issues apparent on the roof deck directly above.

  • Seal around pipes and materials penetrating home.

    Siding

    Sideing is the outer envelope of protection for your home. Siding is the barrier to water and wind penetration into the interior of your home. All exterior joints in material such as cedar, wood, hardy board and plastic trim should be caulked and all penetrations through this skin should be sealed.
    On all water sensitive siding material, should be regularly maintained with caulking and paint to extend its life and prevent water penetration.
