Air Leakage

Putting Building Designs and Occupants at Risk Not only is air leakage a major cause of moisture buildup in a structure, it leads to a host of other problems: uneven thermal performance issues, including "cold floor syndrome" in areas located over unconditioned
spaces, like an office above the garage; health issues related to mold and poor indoor air quality; noise control and structural durability. All are negatively affected by air leakage.

Consider these facts:

• Air leakage accounts for 99% of moisture movement in a structure, which can result in mold growth and adverse health effects for occupants
• Air leakage can account for as much as 40% of a structure's energy loss
• 90% of all building failures in the U.S. are related to moisture
Clearly, controlling air leakage is key to maintaining a healthy, sustainable structure. Insulation that fails to prevent air leakage fails to do its job. Period.

Best Way to Control Air Leakage

Conventional insulation leaves gaps and seams where air can move through the building envelope.

We have a ceramic floor above the garage and in the winter, the floor would often be 18 degrees colder than the room temperature. After removing the fiberglass and adding Icynene, the temperature difference is now less than 2 degrees, and we no longer have frozen pipes.
