THE INS AND OUTS OF AIR Air leakage rates in today’s buildings are often dramatically lower than in older buildings. S. Department of Energy blower door tests. They found that for spaces built with SIPs, the leakage rate was 8 cubic feet per minute at 50 pascals compared to 121 cubic feet per minute at 50 pascals for wood framing with fiberglass batt insulation. The low leakage rates, along with more continuous insulation and less thermal bridging, mean that SIPs can help reduce energy consumption costs up to 60 percent.
