Air movement through the wall assembly is far greater than many designers imagine. With an air barrier system, you can improve a building's performance and reduce heating and cooling costs by as much as 36%.*
Air barrier systems help separate the outside environment from the desired interior environment. Ultimately, an air barrier creates seamless continuity and structural integrity that helps eliminate uncontrolled air leakage and allows control over temperature, humidity, moisture and air quality throughout the building. By not controlling potential moisture penetration, you increase the chance of mold growth and poor air quality.
