Energy codes now require duct leakage testing with specific limits for any new duct system. Even tighter limits are coming in future codes. New and existing ductwork can be made safer, more energy efficient, and code-compliant if you know how to test it and where to find and seal the leaks. This BPI Infiltration and Duct Leakage Professional (IDL) hands-on intensive workshop will teach you how to measure HVAC duct leakage and locate leaks using several different diagnostic approaches and tools.
The new Energy Codes are requiring infiltration and duct leakage testing and verification by an qualified technician.The IDL Professional Certification is designed to prepare you to offer this valuable service through out the country.
Earning the IDL certification is a simple, comprehensive and affordable way for technicians of builders, remodelers, HVAC and insulation contractors to gain skills needed to offer duct leakage and blower door tests, in compliance with IECC codes for new home construction or existing home remodels. Passing the exam (field exam only) verifies you can conduct duct leakage tests to the ASTM E1554-07 standard and blower door tests to the ASTM E779 standard. Begin with this affordable, single measure credential and work your way up to BPI's "house-as-a-system" certifications using real-time field experience.
