ASHRAE Publishes Book
January 28, 2008

Building operators and designers around the world face common issues related to thermal comfort, ventilation and energy. But these measures take on greater concern for buildings in hot and humid climates. In addition, areas with these climates, such as South Asia, are experiencing rapid construction growth.

Design guidance on critical issues for achieving excellence and long-term sustainability in these climates is contained in a new book from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). The ASHRAE Guide for Buildings in Hot and Humid Climates identifies and explains key issues for owners, architects, HVAC designers, contractors and building owners as they plan, build and operate air-conditioned buildings — in a sustainable way — in hot and humid climates.
