Default Re: Found with thermal

Good stuff, Robert, thanks!

I have to admit, I'm having a little trouble making sense of what I think I am seeing. With outdoor ambient temps at 81 F and indoor at 75 F (less, I have been taught, than is necessary for accurate evaluation of temperature differentials), what is causing the cooling of the drywall? I could not be loss of heat to the exterior due to the higher external temps, so is it conditioned air from the second story, or some other source that I am not thinking of?

Also, how would you suggest this could be corrected?

Thanks for helping me understand this.
