  • Duct Type: Sheet metal / Flex
  • Duct Location: Partially in conditioned space
  • Air Distribution Location: Basement
  • Air Distribution Upgrades: To meet EarthCraft House™ guidelines total air distribution system air leakage must have a value less than 5% of the total floor area. For a 3,000 square foot house this amounts to 150 cfm of air leakage. Duct leakage to the outside is assumed to be no mo
  • Air Tight Upgrades: In order to meet EarthCraft House™ guidelines, homes require an average air-change rate resulting from natural infiltration lower than 0.35 ACH. Seal all common troublesoem air pathways (attic chase, fireplace, etc..) and seal all exterier penetrations.
  • Vent Type: Controlled supply
  • Vent Control: Other (or combination of the above)
  • Vent Capacity: 53.0
  • IAQ Upgrades: Passive supply air ventilation system and connect to the return air plenum to introduce outdoor air into the home. A mechanical damper and a controller timer regulate the outdoor air flow rate. Exhaust fans in bathrooms remove odors and moisture when switched on.
