ASHRAE Proposes to Move All Residential Ventilation Requirements to One Standard

April 7, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

ASHRAE Energy ManageDwelling units of multifamily buildings of any height would fall under ASHRAE’s residential ventilation standard, 62.2, under a proposed change designed to provide consistency of ventilation requirements.

Currently, ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2013, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality, has responsibility for multifamily residential buildings 4 stories or more, while ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2013, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings, has responsibility for residential buildings 3 stories and less.

The proposed changes are being made via addendum a to Standard 62.1-2013 and addendum g to Standard 62.2-2013, which are open for public review from April 4 to May 4, 2014.
