Laboratory Testing of Aerosol for Enclosure Air Sealing

Charles Booten, Chuck Booten (NREL Technical Monitor)

Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


Space conditioning energy use can be significantly reduced by addressing uncontrolled infiltration and exfiltration through the envelope of a building. A process for improving the air tightness of a building envelope by sealing shell leaks with an aerosol sealing technology is presented. Both retrofit and new construction applications are possible through applying this process either in atticsand crawlspaces or during rough-in stage.
