Designing and building homes where HVAC ducts and air handlers are located inside conditioned spaces can reduce energy use by 15 to 20%, compared to typical HVAC installations. Building with ducts inside improves occupant comfort and can also reduce construction costs, if skillfully implemented.
THIS PROGRAM IS MADE POSSIBLE BY DOE AND NEEA
The Building with Ducts in Conditioned Spaces project was made possible through funding from the United States Department of Energy (USDOE) and Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA). Training and resource materials were created by Earth Advantage Institute (EAI).
