AeroBarrier is a computer-controlled, air sealing process that can dial in building envelope performance in commercial, residential and multi-family structures. It pressurizes the space and emits precise levels of sealant mist that is automatically drawn to any leaks. AeroBarrier is faster, simpler and more effective than manual sealing processes.

Consumers

This gives the home a tight building envelope. The benefits of this are many: more efficient energy use, longer life from heating and cooling equipment, lower utility bills, more comfortable home environment, cleaner indoor air quality. To meet the growing consumer demand for IECC, Energy Star, Net Zero or passive house requirements AeroBarrier is helping make these goals economically feasible and scalable for builders. It’s allowing them to make this feature standard on every home they sell. Take Mandalay Homes, for example: founder Dave Everson tapped AeroBarrier to create 3,500 carbon neutral homes in Arizona. It is quickly becoming a green building best practice for energy-efficient structures and passive homes.

Builders and Contractors:

Creating a tight building envelope is critical for delivering energy efficiency, comfort, durability and indoor air quality. It is also challenging, as it requires meeting increasingly stringent building code requirements. Done manually, the process requires inspection and sealing of windows, drywall, electrical outlets, recessed lighting and any other areas where leaks can affect overall building performance. This is costly and labor intensive. AeroBarrier builds on proven Aeroseal duct sealing technology, expanding its application to the building envelope for commercial, residential and multi-family structures. Faster, simpler and more effective than manual processes, it allows builders to dial in specific levels of tightness desired for a structure. AeroBarrier is a self-guided sealing system. The computer-controlled process pressurizes the space and emits precise levels of aerosol sealant mist that is automatically drawn to any leaks. This innovative sealing method gives the builder a quick, cost-effective means of creating a tight building envelope and eliminates the imprecise, uncertain nature of manual envelope sealing
