Mould is a growing problem in houses. With Elpan or Wanpan installed, humidity on walls and in corners will disappear, making it hard to for mould to grow. The low temperature of 25-30 degrees centigrade of underfloor heating is not enough to dry the walls, thereby not removing mold.
The Expert One of Denmarks leading experts in counseling on mould in buildings, cand.scient. Ole V. Frederiksen from NIRAS A/S, says that Elpan or Wanpan have often proven to be effective to use against humid walls as an effect of thermal bridges. Heating the wall increases the temperature at which dew forms in addition to drying the wall. This lowers the risk that mould will form.
