Duct Leakage Test in Massachusetts
In Massachusetts, which has some of the most strict energy requirements, a passing grade is less than or equal to 4% of the total conditioned floor area. For example, in a 2000-square-foot home, the ductwork can’t exceed leakage of 80 cubic feet per minute cfm.
Duct Leakage Test in Rhode Island
For perspective, consider that in Rhode Island a passing grade is 8% of the conditioned floor area. You can expect RI to come in line with its neighbors by incrementally lowering the threshold from 8% to 6% or lower, in the not-so-distant future.
