These increasingly stringent standards present many obstacles to a builder’s construction process depending on how drastic of a change there is in the code.

Learning new techniques, adding new products to the build, hiring additional support, and increasing labor time, just to name a few, become costly to a builder’s operations.

Labor Cost

Remove the guesswork and complete your air sealing in a third of the time it would take with traditional hand sealing.

Remove Costly Re-testing

The average cost to hire a certified blower door technician is $450. The cost of failure quickly drives up fees.

Get a True R-Value

Removing air leakage allows insulation to perform as it was designed. Get more out of your fiberglass or spray foam insulation.

Right Size Mechanical

A tightly sealed home allows a smaller HVAC system and ductwork. A reduction of just 0.5 tons can save you more than $800

Enhance Renewables

Reducing energy demand reduces the amount of solar panels required to offset utility bills.

Single Family Homes

The Aerobarrier system increases durability, energy efficiency, and indoor comfort. It meets building regulations and passes blower door tests with minimal disruption, taking only one day to complete.

The Aerobarrier system has various advantages when applied during construction. Some of the benefits are greater durability, less mechanical loads, increased energy efficiency, and more affordable renewable energy sources. Additionally, it can enhance homeowners’ general comfort and indoor air quality. Although Aerobarrier is adaptable and may be used from rough-in through move-in, generally the best time for this to be done is post-drywall. With cutting-edge technology to locate and seal leaks that are concealed behind the drywall or in difficult-to-reach places, it offers greater flexibility than conventional air sealing techniques. When it comes to meeting building regulations and step codes, or passing your blower door test, Aerobarrier will be in and out in one day with minimal disruption to your schedule.

Multi-Family Buildings

Compartmentalization made easy with Aerobarrier as a cost-effective solution that provides guaranteed results for multi-family applications, meeting more demanding air tightness requirements while not disrupting the construction schedule

One of multi-family construction’s most important practices is also one of its largest obstacles: unit compartmentalization, especially at party walls. This is critical to properly control fire, smoke, odor, sound, and IAQ.

A properly compartmentalized building ensures ventilation systems can work effectively, especially if the building uses a shared ventilation system. If a multi-family building is not properly air sealed, air is more likely to be pulled from adjacent living spaces instead of fresh outdoor air sources. Reducing the amount of air leakage in multi-family buildings also lowers the amount of moisture traveling in the air, decreasing the likelihood of mold and water damage.

Aerobarrier is the perfect solution for compartmentalization and multi-family applications which also allows your buildings to reach more demanding air tightness requirement levels at a more affordable cost. Only the B.E.S.T. can set up and seal multiple units at a time, providing measurable and guaranteed results without interfering with your construction schedule.
