Building America High Performance Space Conditioning Systems Webinar

November 18, 2014
3:00-4:30 PM EST
Online Webinar

Building America brings you free monthly webinars highlighting the latest advances in residential building technologies and practices, presented by Building America research team experts. The November webinar continues our series on strategies to improve the performance of HVAC systems for low-load new homes and home performance retrofits.  Presenters and specific topics for this webinar will be:

  • William Zoeller, Consortium for Advanced Residential Retrofit, presenting Design Options for Locating Ducts within Conditioned Space. Bill will provide an overview of several design options for ducts—in unvented attics, dropped soffits, modified trusses and floor trusses, sealed crawlspaces, and buried and encapsulated.
  • Dave Mallay, Partnership for Home Innovation, presenting Compact Buried Ducts. Dave will discuss buried ducts and design considerations, the compact duct concept, results of field testing and monitoring, and alternative solutions for air sealing and insulating ducts.
  • Jordan Dentz, Advanced Residential Integrated Energy Solutions, and Francis Conlin, High Performance Building Solutions, Inc., presenting Air Distribution Retrofit Strategies for Affordable Housing. They will discuss a project with two retrofit duct sealing techniques—manually applied sealants and injecting a spray sealant—that were implemented in several low-rise multi-unit buildings.
