HAVE WHBA PERFORM YOUR DET TESTING!
Get your DET Testing Done For As Little As $200 Per Home Through WHBA
DET Verification is now required on all new homes in prior to obtaining a Certification of Occupancy   Verification includes a Blower Door Test for air infiltration and Duct Blast Test on all HVAC systems outside the home's conditioned space.  The BDT results must be less than 7 air changes per hour at 50 Pascals (ACH50).  When the 2012 IECC code is adopted, the requirement will drop to 3.   The DBT is performed on the ducts outside the building envelope (in unconditioned spaces) to identify excessive leakage. The Georgia energy code requires that the duct leakage outside the envelope be less than 11 cubic feet per minute per 100 square feet of conditioned floor area if tested after construction.  This will also change to 4 with the adoption of the 2012 IECC code.

This level of air tightness is not hard to achieve but home builders will need to hire a DET Verifier who is certified to perform the diagnostic testing required by the 2009 IECC Georgia amendments.  (See Link Below) Only a Certified Duct & Envelope Tightness or DET Verifier will be allowed to do this testing.  WHBA is Certified to perform this test and will be happy to assist you with any DET Verification questions you may have.

Membership in Westside HBA qualifies you for the $200 PER HOME PRICE for DET Testing done through the association where the HVAC system is contained in the conditioned space.  This represents a savings of at least $150 per home over other 3rd party verifiers. HVAC systems outside the conditioned space are tested at a cost of $50 each.  This service is offered to non-members at a price of $300.00 per house. 

As a Certified DET Tester, our WHBA Executive Officer - Chris Collier, will personally perform your required DET Verification Testing and issue you the DET Certificate necessary to obtain a CO on your home.  Call Chris at 770-355-6714 to schedule your next DET Certification.
