Moisture
Clay and earth materials are highly valued for their ability to absorb and dissipate moisture. Many new buildings, however, are built to be airtight and include ventilation systems that often extract the air and the moisture it contains at a high air change rate. As a result the clay plaster cannot absorb humidity from the air as desired and return it to the room as required. To make best use of the humidity regulating qualities of clay plasters, it is therefore advisable to reduce the air change rate. In many cases, using earth building materials in new or renovated buildings obviates the need for low-capacity ventilation systems or demand-controlled ventilation systems that use CO2 sensors. That saves money and energy.
