Recognizing an industry need, Owens Corning conducted a groundbreaking study that captured the complex physics behind air infiltration and leakage patterns in a residential home. Using laboratory and real-house testing, the study took more than 1,000 air leakage measurements over 12 months and tested characteristics across 17 different key joints. With this research, they identified the specific joints where air is most likely to enter and escape – directly impacting a home’s energy efficiency, air quality and comfort. Using this knowledge, Owens Corning developed the EnergyComplete™ system to help builders and homeowners achieve a more energy efficient and comfortable home.As builders and homeowners become more eco-conscious, EnergyComplete™ is poised to represent the future of eco-friendly home insulation.
