BA-PIRC Partnership with
Energy Conservatory

Minneapolis, MN

BA-PIRC staff work with the Energy Conservancy (EC) to evaluate their new products for measuring air handler and exhaust fan flows. In 2004, BA-PIRC staff worked with EC staff to develop an automated test that will provide duct leakage to outside. Discussion with EC indicated significantly increased sales of duct blasters to HUD-code manufacturers as a result of BA-PIRC efforts. In Year 6, discussions with NIST, LBL, Ecotope and Energy Conservatory continued on a retrofit research effort with Dupont Tyvek, and development of new ventilation system controls with Panasonic. WSU continues to work with EC to develop new building science tools for HUD-code housing.
