Draft PDS-01 MINHERS Addendum 47f, Exception for Ducts in Conditioned Space

Proposed Addendum 47f is the follow up to Interim Addendum 47i which amends the RESNET Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating Standards to provide a temporary exception ending January 1, 2021 to duct leakage testing for certain types of ducts located within conditioned space. It adds an exception to the requirements of Standard ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301 in section 303 of the MINHERS standards for determining HERS ratings. The exception allows use of a default Distribution System Efficiency (DSE) in lieu of required testing of the air distribution system leakage when ducts are located within conditioned space.
