Prescriptive Duct Sealing MH Spec

Please note: These specifications are intended as the minimum requirements to achieve, on average, the RTF's UES estimates.  Programs should consider adding requirements to reduce negative impacts on health and safety, to reduce costs, to increase the measure life, and to increase energy savings.1. Ducts must not have been previously sealed with mastic.2. Appropriate materials and duct sealing methods shall be used.UL-181 listed mastic is an appropriate material to seal non-flexible duct connections.  Cloth-backed duct tape shall not be used to seal, secure, or fasten ducts.  Loose tape shall be removed prior to sealing.  Secured tape that remains must be completely covered with mastic.  Where there are large gaps in sheet metal or duct connections, repairs shall be made using sheet metal, sheet metal screws, and/or mastic with mesh-reinforcing tape (for holes or gaps less than 1 inch).For flexible crossover ducts, both the inner and outer lining shall be tightly fastened using a compression strap tightened with a tool designed for that purpose. 3. End caps shall be made of either sheet metal or a UL-181 approved rigid product, and sealed.4. Ducts shall be sealed from the interior at every supply register (boot-to-duct connections , floor-to-boot gaps, and any other duct connections within an arms reach).5. Plenum connections shall be sealed (plenum-to-furnace connection and plenum-to-trunk duct connection).6. Crossover duct connections shall be sealed (crossover duct takeoff-to-trunk and crossover duct-to-collar connections).7. Inferior sections of crossover duct, such as rusted, crushed, disconnected, torn, or sections otherwise ineffective, shall be repaired or replaced. New crossover ducts shall be insulated to a minimum of R8.8. Crossover duct shall be mechanically fastened and supported to avoid disconnection and airflow restrictions.

6 – New Measure Proposal


Fixture with integrated LED or

Fixture with separate LED lamp provided in package


Regional Potential

~150 to 200 aMW over the next 20 yearsOverlaps with savings potential from CFL and LED lamps131 million fixtures in RBSA. Assume 50% of this is installed (new, replace) over 20 years.

Regional Potential:



Challenges to Work Through

Study Design: Data from the WSU study, but may not be able to use results directlyDesign of study does not necessarily encourage the same behavior that we might expect (on the meter)Baseline: What is the baseline heating system type? Zonal electric resistance: good savings (assumed in WSU study)Zonal/DHP hybrid: zero savingsElectric forced air furnace: very good savingsCentral heat pump: savings close to zeroGas forced air furnace: negative electric savingsLikely a mix of above (could exclude gas where unavailable)



Proposed Timeline

Ideally, BPA would like to see these measures addressed by November/DecemberLED Fixtures: Seems realisticDHP for New construction: May take time to work through baseline question



Proposed Decision

“I _____ move that the RTF allocate staff resources towards developing(choose)a Residential LED Fixture UES Measurea Residential DHP for New Construction UES Measure.”
