Air sealing a home to reduce air changes per hour can be a daunting task for builders old and new. Insulation professionals are in a perfect position to help builders understand where the air is lost, and how to seal up small and large holes to meet code requirements and performance expectations. In this session, our presenter Kevin Weer will discuss detailed framing techniques, product and application concepts for air reduction, and simple tricks to help reduce unwanted airflow into the home before and after the sheetrock has been installed.
