Building and ductwork leakage are detrimental to energy conservation, comfort, and hygiene. They can cause building damage and it can prevent proper control of the ventilation airflow rates. Through the ASIEPI project, we have identified that while some key elements for a market transformation on envelope airtightness are under development in many countries, status quo seems to prevail for the duct market. With the objective of all new constructions being “nearly zero energy buildings” in 2020, policy makers need to know how better airtightness can be stimulated.
