WHY
AEROBARRIER?

TURNING ISSUES
INTO OPPORTUNITIES

More and more home builders are turning to AeroBarrier, and for a good reason!

AeroBarrier turns air sealing issues into opportunities with guaranteed results from a single crew.

AeroBarrier allows new levels of efficiency that prevent common waste traps throughout the construction process.

Measurable Results

Our software shows results in real-time. The system can dial in your desired leakage by incorporating a blower door. It’s that easy and verified upon completion.

Fast & Easy to Apply

From start to finish, the air sealing process takes 60-90 minutes. In new construction applications, prep and clean-up time is minimal – typically taking less than an hour.

Cost-Effective

No more caulking is needed to weatherize a space pre-drywall. Meet and verify air tightness requirements in real-time, avoid guesswork, and save on time, material, and labour.

Durable

Sealant achieves durability performance in 3 key areas: flexing, aging, and compatibility in tests simulating 50 years of service.

Meet Any Requirement

Innovative technology removes human error while sealing areas that cannot be reached with manual techniques.

Safe

GreenGuard Gold is certified with Ultra-low VOC content and no off-gassing. Work can resume in the home within 30 minutes.

REDUCE YOUR BUILD COST & STREAMLINE THE PROCESS

AeroBarrier turns air sealing issues into opportunities with guaranteed results from a single crew.

Historically, air sealing has been an unreliable, inconsistent guessing game with many hands involved. A lot of trust is placed in multiple subcontractors to do their part so you aren’t blindsided by a failed inspection.

Unfortunately, failing an initial blower door inspection is more common than not. This requires extra labour, hold times, testing fees, schedule conflicts, and more – all of which is money out of your pocket.

AeroBarrier’s precise, measurable results remove the guesswork and headache of uncertainty when it comes to meeting any air sealing requirement.

Upon completion, the AeroBarrier Connect air sealing system automatically provides you with an air sealing certificate.

Easily Meet Any Air Sealing Requirements

Meet any ENERGY STAR®, LEED, Passive House or Net Zero requirements the first time.

Consistent, guaranteed results allow your construction schedule to maintain its course. The best part? The technology is easily integrated into any build process.

VERSATILE APPLICATIONS: SINGLE, MULTI-FAMILY & MORE

Whether your project is new construction or a gut renovation, AeroBarrier has the answer to your air sealing needs.

The possibilities are limitless. If it can be pressurized, it can be sealed.

The AeroBarrier air sealing system works equally well in single and multi-family applications.

For residential applications, reduced building envelope leakage means increased durability, reduced mechanical loads, improved energy efficiency and more economical renewable energy options.

More importantly, a tighter building envelope can help increase the comfort and overall indoor air quality (IAQ) within the home, leading to a better living environment.

air leakage is…

Typically the largest driver of energy use in the home, comprising 30% – 70% of energy wasted on heating and cooling.

Usually, the biggest contributing factor for drafts or hot/cold spots and other comfort issues in a home.

Often the largest contributor to moisture problems, especially mould and mildew.

MAKE YOUR HOME HEALTHY: WHY AIR SEALING MATTERS

Air sealing is vital to an efficient, durable, healthy home.

It’s simple. You can’t control or regulate a leaky home.

It is one of the most important energy-efficiency measures. Air leakage, or infiltration, occurs when outside air enters a house uncontrollably through cracks, gaps, and openings.

Homes with higher air leakage are significantly less energy-efficient than well-sealed homes. They also require larger HVAC systems to keep the home comfortable. These larger systems must run more frequently to keep up with the temperature changes as the outside air leaks into the house.

The airtightness issue goes beyond how well a building’s HVAC system performs. Uncontrolled air leakage can also provide a vehicle for unwanted moisture to enter a building, which can become the reason for a building to fail, leading to costly building repairs. Because moisture is transferred predominantly by air currents — accounting for up to 98% of all water vapour movement in buildings — air sealing your home is essential. Leaky houses also allow dust, allergens, pollutants and other airborne particulates to enter the home, leading to poor indoor air quality.

Reducing the amount of air leaking in and out of your home is a cost-effective way to cut heating and cooling costs, improve durability, increase overall comfort, and create a healthier indoor environment.

ADDRESSING 3 of the 4 MAJOR RISKS OF BUILDING

AeroBarrier addresses three major risk management control when constructing a home.

Each is necessary to guarantee a healthy, efficient, well-built home.

The control of heat flow in buildings requires insulation layers comprising a few thermal bridges, an effective air barrier system, good control of solar radiation, and management of interior heat generation.

Two requirements must be met for air to flow into, out of, or within a building: a hole or path must exist for the air to flow through, and there must be a driving force. Air flows within buildings are either controlled or uncontrolled. In either case, the actual flow of air is determined by several factors, including hole size, resistance to flow, and pressure effects. Uncontrolled airflow can lead to comfort, indoor air quality and energy efficiency concerns.

Unlike bulk water control, vapour control addresses the moisture that travels via air and is unseen to the naked eye. Once inside a wall cavity, the vapour will go through convective loops in which it can reach the dew point and turn from vapour to liquid. This is often seen later as condensation or damp insulation fibres.
