The 2018 IECC explicitly allows the use of buried ducts in standard vented attics. This practice offers energy savings that can rival certain unvented attic designs but at a lower cost. Because of this, many builders are beginning to pilot this new approach. The code lays out details both for proper design, specification, and installation of buried duct systems, as well as prescribing methods for accounting for them in energy models when using the HERS® Index, performance path or the ERI. During this webinar, attendees will learn about the science behind the performance of buried ducts and discuss the practical aspects of an effective installation. In addition, attendees will be provided with an overview of effectively modeling buried ducts using various software packages. Attendees will gain a better understanding about a significant new code change, and how to help their builder customers incorporate and model it in the homes they build.

Our expert panelists for this webinar include Katrina Keeley of Owens Corning and Charlie Haack of NAIMA.After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
