Some insulation contractors have a misguided notion that air sealing should be avoided because uncontrolled leakage allows buildings to “breathe.” On the other hand, there are builders who employ “standard air sealing.” They only seal major plumbing and electrical openings as well as the rough openings around windows and doors.
Either way that means a leaky, drafty home.
When FOAMCO, Inc is called upon to provide spray foam insulation we provide advanced air sealing services with every installation, unless, of course, the structure is already properly sealed.
Achieving this level of tightness requires a continuous air barrier. We’re one of the few insulation contractors in the country to do this as part of our standard service.
There’s nothing new about the idea of a continuous air barrier. It’s simple: a leaky house is uncomfortable, drafty and wasteful. The combination of spray foam insulation with advanced air sealing is the best way to create a more comfortable energy efficient home.
