Why Do Air Barriers Really Matter?

By essentially “wrapping” the building, air barriers ensure that the building is protected from the effects of airflow and air leakage. The main purpose of an air barrier is to prevent air leakage through the building envelope. Uncontrolled air circulation can cause heat loss resulting in high energy costs, not to mention an increase in the risks of condensation and mold growth in the assembly.
