Air Flow; Buildings; HVAC; Ducts
Air leakage of air-handling units (AHUs) is a subset of a much larger duct leakage problem that exists in homes. There are large energy and demand impacts associated with duct leakage. This article considers energy impacts of AHU leakage, but focuses primarily on IAQ problems and health risks caused by duct leakage, especially as they relate to the location of the AHU.
