Building Performance Contractors Association

Annual Meeting & Duct Blaster Training

April 29, 2008 -- East Syracuse, NY

There will be a 1 hour Annual Meeting and 2-hour presentation by Louis Marrongelli of CSG offering 2 BPI CEU’s

Duct systems have two types of holes: intentional (registers) and unintentional (possible leaks). Holes have different effects on how a house uses energy and on the comfort and safety of occupants. This session will provide a concise overview of the difference between a hole and a leak, the effects of duct leakage on energy use and house pressures, the importance of prioritizing duct repair work, and the various benefits of performing diagnostic tests (hint: these go beyond saving energy).

Participants will

  • Explore the effects of duct leakage on energy use and house pressures
  • Find out how to prioritize duct repairs and what to use to fix them
  • Recognize the importance of testing in and out
  • There will be time to “Ask the Expert” about Duct Blaster Issues


Building Performance Institute -- 2 (BPI)


Heating contractors, building performance contractors, raters, HVAC suppliers, code officials, home inspectors, and anyone involved in construction or building modifications will improve their understanding of properly sized and sealed ductwork.
