Build Tight and Ventilate Right
Areas of air leakage can account for 30% of a home's heating and cooling costs, and contribute to problems with moisture, noise, and dust. Air infiltration can also contribute to indoor air pollution. Creating a continuous air barrier around the home reduces air leakage, significantly cuts annual heating and cooling costs, and creates a healthier environment.
