Free webinar on buried ducts

April 5th, 2017 - Posted by Jordan Doria under Upcoming Events

Green Builder Media is running a free webinar on April 19th at 2:00 PM eastern on buried ducts. The 2018 IECC laid out a prescriptive path for the use of buried ducts with fibrous insulation in vented attics, for all climate zones. This new path was approved because it will allow builders to get much of the energy efficiency benefits of an unvented attic with closed cell spray foam by instead doing a traditional vented attic with the ducts buried in fibrous insulation. Some of the research used to support this code change was performed by Home Innovation Research Labs (HIRL), led by Dave Mallay. On this webinar Dave will explain the research that led to the code change, what the benefits are of this design approach and walk through how to comply with the new code language.
