What is the home envelope? Why is this important to my energy consumption?

A building envelope is the physical separators between the inside of your home and the outdoor environment of a building. To keep your home warm and energy efficient you want to keep treated air inside and the elements, water, heat, cold, moisture and noise outside.  The three basic elements of a building envelope are a weather barrier, air barrier, and thermal barrier. Attic Zipper helps create a more secure and tight building envelope.
