Abstract

The aim of the study was to find out how a hygroscopic material such as wood influences the comfort of indoor conditions (humidity). For the field measurement, 14 single family houses were chosen, representing massive hygroscopic, massive non-hygroscopic, light hygroscopic and light non-hygroscopic structures. According to the measurements, there were no significant differences in behaviour when the monthly values (temperature and relative humidity) were compared. Differences could be found, however, when the daily values were studied. The interior (furnishings, textiles, carpets, etc.) has a high impact on the hygroscopic behaviour of the indoor climate. The non-hygroscopic structures were thus actually somewhat hygroscopic due to the interior.
