An air barrier is unheated and provides an unrestricted airflow designed to create a seal across an open door and reduce ingress of cold external air. For more information read our blog Air Barriers – The Difference.
The air barrier will help to protect against erratic fluctuations in internal temperature. By stabilising temperature within heated or air conditioned spaces this will reduce the cycling of your temperature controlling equipment.
We select the most appropriate air barrier solution based on clear opening dimensions of the entrance and conditions within the space. These conditions can be affected by external exposure and by other HVAC equipment. We always recommend contacting us with your enquiry so we can help with model selection.

The external air intake and internal blowers should always be cleaned regularly. Your authorised service provider can provide you with a recommended service plan based on the conditions within your space and the frequency of use.
