Residential Prescriptive Duct Sealing
Background and Subcommittee Scope – BPA has requested the RTF consider its proposal for a new UES measure: prescriptive duct sealing. The intention is to provide an alternative to the PTCS duct sealing measure, not to replace it. The subcommittee will review and provide its input on the draft proposed specification, research plan, and UES summary sheet. Once the subcommittee agrees on the measure definition and research plan, the Research and Evaluation Subcommittee will be asked to provide feedback on the research plan prior to presenting the measure proposal to the RTF. The goal is to present the measure to the RTF for adoption at its August meeting.
