  • Representatives from the National Energy Management Institute (NEMI) joined the Sheet Metal and Air-Conditioning Contractors’ National Association (SMACNA) to welcome individuals from the private and public sector for the second annual New York State Indoor Air Quality Day on Nov. 15, 2000.
  • The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE) presents proposed residential indoor air quality standard “Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings” (Standard 62.2P). The proposed standard’s purpose is to set guidelines to achieve acceptable indoor air quality for dwellings. Comments received during the review, which closed Oct. 10, 2000, will be considered by ASHRAE in developing the final standard.
  • ASHRAE is proposing specific locations for outdoor air intakes in an addendum to Standard 62-1999, “Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality.” Addendum aa specifies minimum separation distance requirements between common outdoor contaminant sources, such as exhaust vents and loading docks, and outdoor air intakes. It also sets requirements intended to limit rain intrusion and entrainment for bird screening. The addendum is open for public review until Jan. 30, 2001. For more information, please visit
