SMACNA Taking Comments on Procedural Guide

Organization Seeks Comments on “HVAC Systems Sound and Vibration Procedural Guide”

CHANTILLY, Va. — The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association has opened up a 45-day public review, starting immediately, for its “HVAC Systems Sound and Vibration Procedural Guide.”

Comments are due to SMACNA no later than June 7.

Many codes and project specifications require measurement and verification for proof of compliance. “The HVAC Systems Sound and Vibration Procedural Guide,” first edition, details methods and processes that, when followed, will provide repeatable measurement and verification of sound and vibration levels. The manual is designed to be used by trained technicians.

Trained and experienced testing, adjusting, and balancing (TAB) technicians have many of the requisite skill sets to conduct S&V testing. Since TAB work is often one of the last steps in the completion of a building, that same timeframe may represent an opportune time to also conduct S&V measurement and verification.
