Things to keep in mind during airtight building
The building envelope is super important for airtight building. All the cracks, gaps and fissures around a house allow the conditioned air inside a house to escape. This means every time you need to drill or screw (penetration for utilities), it causes a small gap in your building envelope which can lead to changes in the house indoor temperature. Many people think that building envelope leaks come from gaps around door and window frames, but it often occurs in the harder to spot areas like between roof and wall assembly. Opt for super insulated envelopes to make sure your house is airtight.
