A friend of the family asked me to stop by and take a look at a humidity problem they’re having with an outbuilding at their home, I’m interested if anyone else has some insight into a solution to the problem that we haven’t considered.
The outbuilding is a framed building on a concrete slab with an attached carport. Attic space runs over the outbuilding and carport. The building has gable vents and soffit vents. The interior of the outbuilding was finished by a previous owner. We live in Georgia where are summers are incredibly humid. It seems like ambient humidity is essentially just being trapped inside the outbuilding as there’s no AC or ventilation systems to circulate air.
We’ve talked about adding an exhaust or attic fan to help ventilate the space. We were also considering installing a whole house dehumidifier unit, but that might be overkill for a 20’x20’ space that’s used every once in a while.
Again, curious if anyone has any expert insight or a solution that we’ve totally overlooked. Thank you in advance for any help!!
