Bay City Spray Foam

Building scientists near Bay City, Texas agree – you need an air barrier to make a building truly energy efficient. That’s because up to 40 percent of conditioned air escapes through the cracks, gaps and holes that exist in the envelope of the average American building.

When air leaves the building, it takes moisture and pollutants along for the ride, contributing to premature deterioration, mold and mildew.

Reduce air leakage by up to 83 percent

A study from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) shows continuous air barrier systems reduce air leakage by up to 83 percent, for potential gas savings of greater than 40 percent and electrical savings greater than 25 percent.

Massachusetts, Wisconsin and Michigan mandate air barrier systems under their Commercial Energy Codes. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) will mandate air barriers under Addendum z to Standard 90.1-2004.

To meet these standards, an air barrier system must:

  • Have an air permeance rating less than 0.004 cfm/ft2
  • Be continuous throughout the building envelope
  • Have interconnected, flexible joints
  • Be able to withstand positive and negative wind pressures without displacement
  • Be durable enough to last the life of the building
