Condensing surface – always the backside of the sheathing?
messy quote from youtube transcript:
enough thermal mass to handle the change inphase energyyou need a condensingsurface with sufficient thermal mass tohandle the change in phase energyfor condensation to occur well the firstsurface is the back side of the damnsheathing
This makes sense intuitively, however, does the backside of the sheathing being the condensing surface still hold true for situations like:
-rigid foam insulation
-peel and stick membranes applied to the exterior of wood fiber insulation
i.e. in these situations do these surfaces have enough thermal mass to produce condensation?
