Pennsylvania Air Leakage Testing Update

February 7, 2019

As part of the adoption of the 2015 codes, specifically, N1102.4.1.2 Air Leakage Testing, all manufacturers will be required to place this requirement on the Site Installation Inspection Report (§145.91(e)) which is provided to each person installing the industrialized home. Please assure the installer is aware of this addition and please refer to the section within the IRC. Please add to your checklist something to reflect; Air Leakage Test was conducted in accordance with N1102.4.1.2 and a written report of the results was signed by the approved third party conducting the test and provided to the code official.

Please note if the test passed or failed. If the test does fail, the reason should be noted by the agency. If the test fails as a result of the manufacturing process, the manufacturer must take appropriate action and make necessary corrections.
