In a recent study completed by the United States Department of Commerce, a simulation was performed of commercial office spaces in different climates across the country. The study found that the energy efficiency of a common commercial office environment is insufficient due to airflow issues. It was calculated that, based on average national prices, consumers save between 3% and 36% on energy costs when installing Air Barrier systems.
Mar-Flex Waterproofing and Building Products manufactures the new AIR Barrier 1200 VP/1200 Primer. This new product allows regulation of air flow, moisture, and savings on energy costs, as proven by the Department of Commerce.
