PTCS® Duct Sealing Certification Form
All sections must be filled out, signed, and dated by a PTCS® Certified Technician at the time of installation. A copy of the completed form must be promptly submitted to the utility and homeowner in accordance with utility policy. Please enter this form online at https://ptcs.bpa.gov/ or fax to 877-848-4074. Questions? Call 800-941-3867 or email ResHVAC@bpa.gov.
If more than 50% of the ducts are in conditioned space, the home does not qualify for PTCS® duct sealing. A conditioned space is a space that's heated and cooled with the rest of the house.
HOUSE PRESSURIZATION AND DUCT BLASTER TESTS
Duct Leakage Test: TYPICAL DUCT BLASTER CFM READING with Duct Pressure at 0 Pa and Blower Door at +50 Pa.
Duct Fan Pressure: Found using equipment; it is the fan pressure, not the house pressure. (ex. Ring 1, 78 Pa, 364 CFM).

Combustion Appliance Zone (CAZ) Test
A carbon monoxide (CO) detector installed in the home is required in all cases where a sealed or non-sealed combustion appliance is located in a conditioned space or attached structure i.e. garage. RECOMMENDED CO detector specifications: UL 2034/CSA 6.19-01, digital display, peak CO memory and recall.
With air handler fan ON, record gauge readings
Net Depressurization = Net (Pa) = All fans off Reading (Pa) (minus) Air Handler Fan on Reading (Pa)
Example: Baseline reading with all fans off = 1 Pa; Reading with air handler fan on = -2Pa. Net Depressurization = 1– (-2) = 3 Net Depressurization
“Net” equals how much the pressure goes down when the air handler is turned ON (compared to the fan off baseline pressure)
