What do Air Barrier Systems do?

An air barrier system is designed to keep outside air from entering a building, and keep the inside air from leaving. When it is cold outside, the warm air remains inside and keeps the cold air out. The opposite happens when it is warm outside; keeping the warm air outside and the cool air inside. In addition to the comfortable temperature these systems provide, they can provide energy savings to your building.
