AIR LEAKS = MOLD, ROT, DECAY
Air leaks is more than just escaping air–it also means escaping moisture. Air barriers prevent the interior, moisture-laden air from entering the wall cavity where it can damage materials and promote mold growth.
AIR LEAKAGE ALLOWS 100X MORE MOISTURE TRANSFER
The Building Science Corporation studied how much water passes through drywall during a typical year.
A full sheet of drywall was compared to a full sheet of drywall with a 1″ hole. That one, tiny hole allowed 7.5 gallons of water through it because of air leakage.
Moisture Problems Related to Air Leakage
When moist air leaks out of your building, it leaves the moisture inside the wall, causing all sorts of unseen problems. From mold growth to wall failure, the effects of moisture deposits over time are devastating.

THE AEROBARRIER PROCESS
Step 1: Prep & Setup
We prep the area by covering any openings that won’t be sealed, set up all of our equipment which includes the blower door, emitters, hoses and the AeroBarrier computer station.
Step 2: Pressurize & Apply
Using a blower door, the computerized process pressurizes the space, controls the temperature, humidity, and exact distribution of the AeroBarrier sealant.
Step 3: Real-time Results
With our 100 % guaranteed, you see results in real-time. We have complete control over your desired level of air tightness. You then receive your AeroBarrier Certificate of Completion with the pre and post seal leakage report.
Step 4: Clean Up
Work resumes 30 min. after the sealing is complete. In that 30 min, we remove all tape, coverings and equipment.
40% of CO2 emissions are from buildings.
Most building emissions are due to overrun HVACs.
AeroBarrier means a home with less energy demand.
AeroBarrier reduces outdoor air emissions.
