Efficiency Standards Set for NFPA Codes

September 22, 2000
QUINCY, MA — The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has agreed to the use of ASHRAE 90.1 and 90.2 within the NFPA Consensus Codes™, which establish criteria for commercial and low-rise residential building energy efficiency.

“Energy-efficiency standards are an essential component of any complete code set,” said Frank Coda, executive vice president of ASHRAE. “A relationship between NFPA and ASHRAE is very beneficial for both organizations, because we share a similar code development philosophy and commitment to consensus.”
