AIR SEALING WRAPS & TAPES
4 Reasons to Move Towards Passive Home Building Systems
High energy losses today
There are many small gaps or leaks in a building envelope, which allows heat and cooled air to constantly escape.
Major heating requirements
Powerful heating systems are required to maintain a room temperature at 68°F in winter because of constant heat escaping.
Major cooling requirements
Over the next 30 years, 10 air conditioning units will be purchased every second globally. Powerful air conditioning systems are required to keep spaces at a comfortable 75°F because of constant cool air escaping.
Leaking buildings intensify
Inefficient buildings create high CO2 emissions, which intensifies the greenhouse effect and accelerates global warming and the threat of climate change.
4 Major Advantages to Air Tight Buildings
Greater living comfort
Live without drafts. Airtight buildings keep heat and cold outside, as well as traffic noise and air pollution.
Save money, protect the climate
Energy consumption for heating and cooling of an airtight building is significantly lower than traditional structures, and as a result, reduces climate-damaging CO2 emissions.
Airtight buildings are protected from wind, rain, drifting snow, insects and building damage caused by condensation and mold.
Active house feasible
The low energy consumption of an airtight building facilitates self-sufficiency with renewable energy. That’s how easy it is to turn a building into an active building.
