Thanks to changes that NAHB championed in the 2018 International Residential and Energy Efficiency Code, many home builders are now able bury their ductwork within the attic insulation — a potential savings of as much as $4,000 per home when compared to the cost of conditioning the entire attic.
What’s the best way to do this, and how can builders take advantage of this practice and produce an energy-efficient home at a lower cost? The Department of Energy is offering a free webinar Nov. 9 at 1 p.m. ET that explains the process.
Craig Drumheller, NAHB’s director of codes and standards, will be the speaker. Drumheller worked with NAHB codes staff and committee volunteers to introduce the buried duct proposal during the 2018 codes approval process.
