AC Can Attract Termites

Condensation Caused By Air Conditioning

While conducting Building Inspections, ABIS is seeing an increasing number termite problems following the installation of AC systems. When running an AC system in the humid QLD summer, condensation can occure on the top side of ceiling sheets under the insulation in the roof void and on the backside of wall sheets behind the moisture barrrier. This condensation can increase the moisture content of the house frame which in turn creates contitions that termites seek out.

To avoid these problems make sure your roof void and wall cavities are well ventilated and keep your termite management up to date.
