ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America Educational Institute (ACCA-EI) Standards Task Team (STT) has announced an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) public review period for a new standard, “Existing Residential Building Performance Improvement.” The public review period will close on April 25, 2011.

The proposed standard is said to identify the metrics, tolerances, approved procedures, and required documentation to (1) evaluate the current performance, (2) establish the basis to create performance improvement specifications, (3) identify approved approaches to implement the specified improvements, and (4) establish the procedures to objectively assess the performance change of the completed improvements.

The proposed standard is referenced as BSR/ACCA 12 ERBP-201x. It and the required response form can be downloaded at www.acca.org/ansi. Comments must be submitted on the response form in accordance with the instructions on the form. Comment response forms and questions must be addressed to Dick Shaw at standards-sec@acca.org.
