ASHRAE Studies Heat and Moisture Production Rates of Swine Houses
November 19, 2007

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is funding research to update heat and moisture production rates from pigs and their housing facilities, which are the foundation for effective design and operation of HVAC&R systems. The project is currently out for bid by ASHRAE. Complete information can be found at

Currently available data on heat and moisture production rates is nearly 50 years old. Since that time, swine production has undergone significant changes in terms of genetic potential, nutrition, housing strategies and production systems, all of which affect swine heat and moisture production rate.
