    Default Air Sealing Electrical Boxes (Expanding Foam.)

    Hello,

    I'm working on a new renovation with new wiring and access to the open framing. I would like to prevent air leakage around all electrical boxes.

    One thought I have is to use expanding foam around the outside of the boxes. Is this OK?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Bill
