One of the biggest obstacles to keeping a building comfortable and energy efficient is air infiltration and exfiltration. When air is able to enter a building or leave a building, it can cause hot and cold spots throughout the living space. It can also cost significantly more to heat and cool a building when the air is able to move easily in and out. The solution to this problem is air barrier systems.
Several types of air barrier systems can be employed depending on the building design:
- Spray Polyurethane Foam
- Fluid applied
- Mechanically fastened or sheet good
