What product would Ecosynergy like to feature:Aerobarrier
Aerobarrier is a pressurized application and is completely computerized (not dependent on humans). While sealant is being misted into the air, the unit is under positive pressure. The pressure forces air through the openings and “holes” in the building envelope system and carries the sealant with it, allowing the sealant to self-seal all holes (1/2 inch to a hair line) in one application without any residue on walls or any vertical surface! No more air barrier training, no more trade coordination, no more ACH in “headache”. This technology (sealant Canadian and equipment American) can be used on new builds, existing units, apartment units or any other space that requires airtight or dust free environments. See the air leakage rate drop LIVE on the computer screen getting as low as 0.3 ACH50 within about 2h of seal time. Aerobarrier is the most cost-effective solution to reducing risk of envelope failure, increase comfort and reducing energy bills for any air tightness target.” Please click on the links below for more information. This product was also showcased in FineHomeBuilding Magazine of January 2021.
Why did Ecosynergy become part of the RRHBA? Ecosynergy joined the RRHBA mainly as educators in finding creative cost-effective solutions to construction and to assist in the transition of the energy code. They also wanted to promote their product Aerobarrier.
