Air Leakage and Duct Tightness Compliance Testing for the 2009, 2012 and 2015 IRC/IECC
This section of the webinar will explore the Air Leakage and Duct Tightness testing requirements of the 2009-2015 IRC/IECC. The 2009 IRC/IECC introduced an optional building air leakage test along with requirements for duct tightness testing if any of the ducts run outside of the thermal envelope. In the 2012 and 2015 versions, the air leakage test became mandatory. This section will discuss new provisions in the 2015 code along with issues and concerns that are not addressed in the code.
This section of the webinar is presented by a member of the AHSRAE 62.2 committee, so participants will have the opportunity to have their questions and concerns addressed. Participants will understand how to use the new ASHRAE 62.2-2013 standard, ventilation and acceptable indoor air quality in low-rise residential buildings. This portion will focus on exiting dwellings and cover the details of the ventilation standard that is use across the country. The steps of sizing ventilation, both local and whole-building, are addressed in detail using the free web application by Residential Energy Dynamics (RED).
