BPI Seeking Comments on Air Distribution Standard

Public Comments Will be Accepted Through Sept. 30

MALTA, N.Y. — The Building Performance Institute (BPI) announced its BPI-3300-A-201x: “Standard for Residential Building Air Distribution System Energy Performance” is now available for public comment through Sept. 30.

BPI-3300-A-201x was developed to improve the energy efficiency of residential air distribution (duct) systems within the context of whole-house home performance.

BPI-3300-A-201x (formerly BPI-108) Standard for Residential Building Air Distribution System Energy Performance provides requirements for the energy performance of air distribution systems in residential buildings. The standard includes requirements for measures designed to reduce heat transfer and air leakage of the air distribution system using a whole-house approach.

BPI-3300-A-201x was developed by a working group created by BPI’s Standards Technical Committee (STC) and comprised of subject matter experts representing a wide variety of interest categories and geographical locations.

This standard is currently undergoing American National Standards Institute (ANSI) review, which includes a 45-day public comment period as defined under BPI’s standards development process. Comments are being solicited from stakeholders and the general public. For more information, or to comment, visit http://bpi.pnl.gov/forum.php.
