ASHRAE Publishes IAQ Guidelines for Low-Rise Buildings

A new residential ventilation and indoor air quality guideline is now available from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Inc. ASHRAE Guideline 24-2008, Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings, is the companion guideline to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2007, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings, the only nationally recognized ventilation and IAQ standard developed solely for residences. According to ASHRAE, the new guideline provides information on achieving good IAQ that goes beyond the requirements contained in Standard 62.2 by providing explanatory and educational material not included in the code-intended standard.

Guideline 24, which was written by the committee responsible for maintaining Standard 62.2, includes information on envelope and system design, material selection, commissioning and installation, and operation and maintenance. Committee chair Steven Emmerich said, "While Standard 62.2 contains the essential minimum requirements that all low-rise residential buildings should meet to achieve acceptable IAQ, Guideline 24 is an essential resource for designers, builders, and others looking for reliable information on topics not covered in the standard or seeking to go beyond minimum for high performance construction. Topics covered range from fundamentals of building airflow to humidity control to verification of equipment performance."

The cost of Guideline 24-2008 is $54 ($43 to ASHRAE members). To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at 1-800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide), fax 404-321-5478, or visit at www.ashrae.org/bookstore.
