Delaware has recognized the importance of sustainable development and has implemented several initiatives and programs to encourage and incentivize sustainable building practices. AeroBarrier provides an effective an efficient path to reaching any level of air tightness needed to achieve these program requirements.
We connect our patented technology to your home via a modified blower to pressurize and distribute the sealing formula. The pressure carries our non-toxic, water-based formula throughout the home and effectively seals any leak by using the very air that is leaking out of the home, thereby finding any leak point; visible or not.
In June of 2020 Delaware adopted the 2018 IECC requiring all newly constructed homes to pass 3 ACH50 blower door test.
Achieving a blower door test result of 3 ACH50 (air changes per hour at 50 Pascals) can be challenging but is not impossible, and the pay off you achieve in energy efficiency makes it totally worth the effort. It requires careful attention to building design, construction techniques, and the implementation of proper air sealing measures. Builders need to pay close attention to details and ensure a comprehensive air barrier throughout the building envelope to minimize air leakage.
This is why AeroBarrier is such an attractive solution for builders in the state of New Jersey. If you would like to explore this option for your projects, contact us to discuss our demo and pilot project opportunities.
