ARLINGTON, Va., and ATLANTA - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) have announced that an addendum to the joint standard, ANSI/ASHRAE/ACCA Standard 180-2008, Standard Practice for Inspection and Maintenance of Commercial Buildings HVAC Systems, is open for public review. The public review period closes Aug. 1, 2011.
