If the building envelope is not airtight enough, significant amounts of energy may be lost due to exfiltrating air, or damage to structural elements may occur due to condensation. Air leakage can be avoided by appropriate design and careful construction. Test methods to check the quality of airtightness and to locate the individual leakages are available and are increasingly used.
