High humidity in a tight building enclosure
2011 mid-rise wood frame apartment building with aluminum windows. There is evidence of high condensation. Windows have thermal breaks and IGU is per code.
There are units which have not required any heat at all this winter. Building finish is EIFS.
Where is the moisture coming from? What is the best way to deal with any condensation?
