Ice forming inside wall

Postby Private » Wed Jan 23, 2013 7:43 pm

This picture was taken inside my garage on the inside corner of an exterior wall. Why would this happen. There is a door near by that also has ice formed on the glass. The wall about the concrete foundation is insulated.

Any idea?

this is very common. You have high humidity in the garage (very common in winter) and there is poor air flow in corners so they are typically colder and frost up. Looks like your getting air leakage between the bottom of the wall and top of concrete as well, I can see frost laying on concrete. In the summer once things have dried out and warmed up run a bead of caulking around the bottom of the walls where they meet the concrete, to stop some of that cold damp air from getting in. Its pretty hard to control the humidity when you bring cars covered in ice and snow everyday but try running a small fan to keep the warm air circulating alittle more.
