Open-cell foam and airtightness
I’ve seen reports from the foam manufacturers touting how much better the foam is than fiberglass of the same R value. They’re essentially using the improved airtightness of the foam to show better performance compared to fiberglass with no air barrier. I can see it’s mostly BS. I am wondering if you have a proper air barrier if open cell foam can measurably increase the air tightness of the structure?
