TR-8 Duct Leakage Testing
Where the air handler and/or some ductwork is in unconditioned space, duct-leakage testing shall be performed either after rough-in or post-construction to ensure compliance with ECC 403.2.2. Not less than 20% of such ductwork shall be tested.
For duct systems designed to operate at static pressures in excess of 3 inches w.g. (746 Pa), representative sections, as determined by the progress inspector, totaling at least 25% of the duct area, per ECC 503.2.7.1.3, shall be tested to verify that actual air leakage is below allowable amounts.
