Methods for the measurement of ultraviolet and visible radiation in National Trust houses are described. Problems have been encountered with quality control of ultraviolet-absorbing filters and the recording of transmission spectrophotometric curves is recommended prior to application. Visible light levels are lowered and sunlight eliminated using sun blinds and sun curtains. Spot readings of temperature and relative humidity are being supplemented with data from solid state memory recorders, now installed in several of the houses. Reliable measurements are enabling relative humidity to be controlled through heating, or, in well-sealed areas, with the use of dehumidifiers.
