ASHRAE Publishes 2010 Residential IAQ Standard
June 28, 2010

Changes to make requirements easier to use in home retrofits are covered in the newly published 2010 residential ventilation standard from The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2010, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings, is the only nationally recognized indoor air quality standard developed solely for residences. It defines the roles of and minimum requirements for mechanical and natural ventilation systems and the building envelope intended to provide acceptable indoor air quality in low-rise residential buildings.

The 2010 standard encourages home retrofits to improve indoor air quality through allowance of alternative methods for meeting the standard’s requirements regarding kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans. The standard currently requires fans in those rooms.

The cost of Standard 62.2-2010 is $54 ($46, ASHRAE members). For more information visit www.ashrae.org/bookstore
