Leaky duct work can be the single biggest energy waster in a typical home. It can also compromise indoor air quality, attract unwanted rodents and make comfort difficult or impossible to maintain.
Investment in an energy efficient furnace or heat pump will not provide the desired return if conditioned air is being distributed through leaky or disconnected duct work. Unfortunately, historical construction standards did not include attention to a carefully installed duct work system.
Times have changed. New construction standards are stringent. The Washington State Energy Code (effective January 1, 2011) also has requirements for existing homes. The code requires duct pressure testing be performed at the time any furnace, heat pump or air conditioner is installed. This requirement is intended to reduce energy consumption by increasing consumer awareness of the need ensure duct work systems are not needlessly leaky. While duct sealing was also required in the new code an emergency rule was passed eliminating the mandatory sealing requirement.
