Imagine a draft free energy-efficient home. Spray foam expands up to 100 times its original size to fill every corner of a building’s envelope for thermal insulation and air sealing. With traditional insulation, spaces and gaps in homes that aren’t filled can leak enough air everyday to fill two air blimps!

The answer is, you have to build tight and ventilate right. With the proper use of exhaust fans and heat/energy recovery ventilators, a building envelope can be made tight while clean, healthy air is circulated through the structure. Air leakage needs to be controlled in houses by making wall and attic assemblies as tight as possible. This not only prevents drafts but reduces the amount of airborne noise and dust from entering the building while ensuring that insulated cavities remain moisture-free.
