Nov. 19, 2004: ASHRAE Seeks Bids On Standard 62.2 User's Manual

ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is seeking authors to write a manual to help users meet the requirements of its residential ventilation standard. The proposed manual will apply to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2003, "Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings."

"The manual will assist users in understanding the principles upon which the standard is based, the requirements of the standard, and how those requirements may be met," said David Grimsrud, Ph.D., chair of the Standard 62.2 committee. "It will provide explanations of the standard's requirements and examples of its application."

The Standard 62.2 manual is one of nine proposals for research and special projects released for bid by ASHRAE. Bids are due Dec. 15, and projects are scheduled to begin April 1, 2005.

Standard 62.2 is written in code language with wording that is restrictive, meaning no "accepted practices" or suggested methods were included, said Grimsrud.

According to ASHRAE, the manual will provide a thorough explanation of several requirements, such as rationale of formulas, and examples will be provided. The manual will detail mechanical ventilation system choices, combustion appliance considerations, design of kitchen and bathroom ventilation, and filtration.
