Do I need a HERS Rater Duct Leakage Test?
A: Yes. As of Oct 2005 changing or adding the coil, condenser, or furnace or adding more than 40 feet of ducting needs a HERS Rater duct leakage test. The City required the CF-6R and CF-4R forms before finalizing the permit prior to January 1 2010.
Effective January 1 2010 the DOE added a Refrigerant Charge Measurement and changed the forms to the CF-1R, CF-2R, and the CF-3R. We can provide you with all of these forms after the HERS Rating is completed.
