Building Envelope Tech Team Meeting: Addressing Air Leakage

Peer Exchange Calls
Tuesday, March 28, 2017
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
EST
Sector: Commercial

Air barrier solutions, like sealants, membranes, spray foams, and sheathings, are key to addressing air leakage in commercial buildings, which can account for about 20 percent of the total energy used to heat and cool buildings. During this Building Envelope Tech Team Meeting, we will discuss current practices in measuring air leakage and explore technical resources to support application of advanced air barrier technologies.
