Lowers energy and building costs
One of the largest energy saving factors in building construction is a functioning Building Envelope System®. In fact, as much as 25-40% of energy consumed to condition indoor space in well insulated homes is due to air leakage through the building envelope.
BlueskinVP™ eliminates uncontrolled air leakage created by various mechanisms such as stack effects, wind effects and mechanical air handling effects – to deliver significant financial benefits to owners and occupants.
Provides mold protection, too
Moisture is transported with moving air, so failure to prevent this can lead to condensation within the wall cavity. Controlling moisture and air leakage controls one of the variables leading to the growth of mold. By excluding mold spores that may be in the wall enclosure from spreading to the indoor environment, BlueskinVP™ can help keep structures healthy and eliminate costs for mold remediation.
