why do metal buildings sweat in cold temps?
We live in east Texas and our metal storage building is holding moisture and is dripping condensation.
The temperature of the metal is equal to or less than the inside dew point. You have 3 options:
1. Insulate the structure so there is no exposed metal. This is what keeps refrigeration pipes from sweating inside buildings. The insulation must be air tight, not just the pink fiberglass stuff.
2. Lower the the dew point in the building. This is done by either removing humidity (using a large dehumidifier or desiccant system) or adding heat. Both are expensive.
3. In Texas I think option 3 might be best. Ventilate the building so that it does not stay colder when it warms up outside during the day. You could install a couple of ventilation fans that move air in or out of the structure.
