Event Description

Most builders understand that when it comes to energy-efficient building envelopes, insulation is only half of the equation. Air sealing is key to achieving high-performance envelopes, and building codes have started setting thresholds for airtightness. Conventional air sealing involves manually sealing cracks and penetrations, often with canned spray foam insulation; however, the results are often highly variable. A promising newer approach uses aerosolized particles to seal gaps from the inside.

 

We will walk through an air barrier process, how it works, the best time(s) to apply, and system capabilities.

Continuing Education Units (CEUS) 1 hour in

Lessons Learned:

  1. Learn how aerosol sealing in new construction is safer for occupants health in regards to the use of a more natural and emission-free insulation method.
  2. Design with the health of occupants and users in mind by using an aerosol sealing that produces less particulates and dust while also sealing the home to reduce outdoor pollution from entering the home.
  3. Achieve equitable access for users and occupants through the use of a more cost-efficient envelope sealing by reducing labor and overhead costs.
  4. Reduce envelope leakage by means of reducing mechanical loads, improving the structures' energy-efficiency and ultimately the renewable energy feasibility.
