During the day, heat from the sun heats up the attic, which creates a large air molecule that’s great because it soaks up the moisture from water use in the house as well as from the HVAC system (mechanicals in the attic).
At night, when the attic cools, the same air molecule becomes small and the moisture condenses on all surfaces. That condensation is absorbed by the structural materials and once the moisture content reaches 16% or greater, mold growth is supported.
PROGRESSION MODEL SHOWING HOW THE PROBLEM OCCURS
During the day, heat from the sun heats up the attic, which creates a large air molecule that’s great because it soaks up the moisture from water use in the house as well as from the HVAC system (mechanicals in the attic). However, at night, when the attic cools down, the same air molecule becomes small and the moisture condensates on all of the surfaces including structural surfaces. That condensation is absorbed by the structural materials and once the moisture content reach 16% or greater, mold growth is supported.
DRY SURFACES DON’T SUPPORT MOLD GROWTH.

The first step of our Moisture Control System for attics begins with our moisture/mold resistant coatings.

Our unique coatings act like a one-way valve. They don’t let moisture back into the surfaces being protected, but they do let moisture escape.

Working with an OnGuard Authorized Dealer means you are hiring a conscientious and experienced professional.  They not only know how to do the work right but they also will educate you on what to expect prior to the job and will give you confidence throughout the work until it is completed.

DEW POINT CONTROLLED VENTILATION IS THE ANSWER

Then we set up a smart system of dew point controlled ventilation.

24 hours per day, the system compares the air outside and inside the space. When the outside air is drier, it brings in the fresh, dry air and pushes out the moisture, stale air it’s replacing.

However, when the air outside is more moist than the inside air, the system remains off. OnGuard coatings and smart ventilation are the perfect system with built-in redundancies that prioritize fresh air, low energy consumption while solving your moisture issues

SMART VENTILATION SOLVES YEAR ‘ROUND PROBLEMS.

During colder times of the year, our smart ventilation system equalizes temperatures in the attic to prevent ice damming and the damage associated with it.

Shingles. Roof Structure. Water Damage. Mold Growth (from condensation). During warmer times of the year, our system ventilates the attic when temperatures reach 100F to keep cooling bills lower and your home more comfortable.

Smart ventilation is a low voltage system that averages $25/year to run!

Guaranteed!  Only an OnGuard Authorized Dealer can bring you the Continuous Protection Warranty. You can have peace-of-mind that every year, your property will be inspected as part of your Moisture Control System. Your OnGuard Authorized Dealer will maintain the system to keep it working efficiently year ‘round. If any problems arise, it’ll be fixed at no charge to you.

WE WON’T REPLACE ONE PROBLEM WITH ANOTHER.

Our system is designed to ride the natural wave of warm fronts and cold fronts to keep your home in balance naturally and minimum cost while prioritizing indoor air quality.

Working with an OnGuard Authorized Dealer means you are hiring a conscientious and experienced professional.  They not only know how to do the work right but they also will educate you on what to expect prior to the job and will give you confidence throughout the work until it is completed.
