Moisture buffering

Energy Efficiency and Historic Buildings, How to Improve Energy Efficiency, Published by Historic England in 2018, defines moisture buffering as: ‘The use of permeable materials and mass construction in traditional buildings which can reduce the effect of fluctuations due to temperature, relative humidity, air pressure or radiation originating either outside the building (due to the external micro-climate) or inside the building (due to heating, lighting air conditioning and use or occupancy).’
