Air Leakage Control - Commercial

  • Division of Building Safety 1090 East Watertower Street Meridian, ID, 83642 United States (map)

Ross Phares (Dupont) explains that air leakage is important because it can transport heat, moisture and contaminants through the building enclosure and can impact building energy performance, envelope durability and occupants’ comfort. A continuous air barrier is critical for air leakage control. Air barrier performance requirements which include air infiltration resistance, continuity, structural integrity and durability will be reviewed. Energy codes which regulate air barrier requirements will be highlighted along with the three compliance options: air barrier materials, assemblies and whole building airtightness.
