Traditionally it was believed that these natural air leaks were the right way to ventilate a home. Today’s building science proves this isn’t the case. Uncontrolled air leaks by way of a “leaky home” can cause too much or too little air to enter or leave the home. Either way, this can result in poor indoor air quality.
Air sealing is the process of reducing the amount of uncontrolled air that moves in and out of a home. Sealing air leaks can reduce energy costs, help with inconsistent temperatures around a home, keep out bugs and outside allergens, and increase your home’s overall indoor air quality.
Spray foam insulation can insulate and air seal in one step. It is applied as a liquid and expands to fill a cavity. By simply insulating with spray foam, you are air sealing at the same time. If you are looking for a two-in-one product, spray foam insulation is your answer.
