Sept. 5, 2013: BPI Seeks Comments on Residential Air Distribution Standard
Standard Developed to Improve the Energy Efficiency of Duct Systems
The standard 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) 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 variety of interest categories and geographical locations.
The standard is currently undergoing American National Standards Institute (ANSI) review, which includes a 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.
