dc.description.abstractAir leakage in buildings located in hot and humid climates can result in excessive energy costs. Additionally, if uncontrolled moisture carried on air currents condenses within building components, it can potentially lead to material deterioration or mold problems. The incorporation of air barriers into the building construction can help control air leakage. This paper reviews the potential benefits of residential air barrier construction in hot and humid climates and the efficacy of housewraps as air barriers.en_US
