ATLANTA - The new 2007 version of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) residential indoor air quality standard is now available.

ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2007, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings, is a nationally recognized IAQ standard developed solely for residences. It defines the roles of and minimum requirements for mechanical and natural ventilation systems and the building envelope intended to provide acceptable IAQ in low-rise residential buildings.

Changes to the standard from the 2004 version include application of exceptions based on climate map zones vs. degree-day based, making it easier to apply the standard; inclusion of a new technology of condensing dryers that do not have an exhaust flow like traditional dryers; and a change in requirements for testing and rating ventilation fans.

The cost of Standard 62.2-2007 is $39 ($32, ASHRAE members). To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at 800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide), by mail at 1791 Tullie Circle NE, Atlanta, GA 30329, or visit the ASHRAE online bookstore at www.ashrae.org.
