Why are rainscreen and ventilation needed? More information here.
A rainscreen system is a type of building envelope that is designed to protect a building from water infiltration. It consists of a layer of siding or cladding that is installed over a layer of insulation and a moisture barrier, with a space (called the “rainscreen”) between them to allow for ventilation and drainage.
One of the main reasons that rainscreen systems need ventilation is to prevent moisture from becoming trapped within the walls of the building. When moisture is allowed to accumulate within a wall cavity, it can lead to a variety of problems, including rot, mold, and structural damage. By providing a way for moisture to escape, a rainscreen system helps to keep the building dry and healthy.
In addition to preventing moisture damage, ventilation can also help to regulate the temperature and humidity within the building envelope. By allowing air to circulate through the rainscreen, the temperature and humidity levels within the walls can be kept at a more consistent and comfortable level, which can help to improve indoor air quality and comfort.
Finally, ventilation is an important consideration when designing a rainscreen system because it can affect the overall energy efficiency of the building. By allowing air to circulate through the rainscreen, a building can take advantage of natural ventilation and reduce the need for mechanical heating and cooling systems. This can help to reduce energy consumption and operating costs, making the building more sustainable and cost-effective to operate.
In summary, ventilation is an essential component of a rainscreen system because it helps to prevent moisture damage, regulate temperature and humidity, and improve the energy efficiency of the building. By designing a rainscreen system that allows for proper ventilation, building designers and owners can help to ensure the long-term durability and performance of their buildings.
