A professionally sealed duct system ensures less energy use in residential buildings and provides immediate and long-lasting benefits to consumers in the form of lower energy costs, improved air quality and more comfortable living environments. That is why the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code with Georgia State Supplements and Amendments includes specific requirements for duct sealing, as well as minimum duct tightness targets for every new home built in Georgia.
This online module provides code officials and construction professionals with a brief overview of these code requirements and their benefits, and lays out key items to observe when inspecting residential duct systems for compliance with the air tightness and duct sealing requirements of the Georgia Code.
This course has been approved for 0.1 CEU by the International Code Council (ICC).
By completing this module and passing the comprehension quiz, participants will be prepared to:
- Explain why duct sealing is important
