The document gives an insight into the issue – which the Association fears will become more problematic in the future as more energy efficient measures are introduced into homes in line with the Government’s Green Deal.
The White Paper is written by Stephen Hodgson, general manager of the PCA.
Mr Hodgson said: “The Green Deal is fast approaching and within the year hundreds, and then thousands, of property owners will be able to release funds to undertake insulation and fuel saving improvements, which will be paid back from projected savings in their gas and electricity bills.
“However, with this in mind, the PCA is becoming increasingly concerned that some insulation treatments are being carried out with little or no attention, to the wider implications or consequences of such treatments.
“This is particularly relevant in relation to ventilation, air movement and condensation.”
