As buildings are constructed to be tighter and more efficient than ever before, mechanical ventilation has become increasingly important in order to maintain a healthy and comfortable indoor environment. Further affecting the ventilation market are increasingly stringent standards and codes, which are influencing both commercial and residential projects across the country.

Standard Developed to Recognize the Energy Performance Profiles Unique to Data Centers
December 11, 2013
Because high plug loads and rapidly advancing IT technology make data centers significantly different from commercial buildings, a purposed standard from ASHRAE that specifically addresses the energy requirements of data centers is now open for advisory public review.
RPA hires technical director; ASHRAE revises its filtration standard; Mechanical Contractors Association of Metropolitan Washington names 2013 president; Greater Philadelphia Chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers names its Energy Engineer of the Year.
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is seeking public input regarding the revision of an ASHRAE/IES standard addressing retrofit of existing residential and commercial buildings to achieve greater energy efficiency.
Public input is being sought on revisions to ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 100-2006, Energy Conservation in Existing Buildings. Last year, ASHRAE and IESNA announced they were revising the standard to provide greater guidance and a more comprehensive approach to the retrofit of existing buildings for increased energy efficiency.
