New ASHRAE Guideline 10 Published
March 21, 2011

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has published a new guideline that provides guidance on achieving good indoor environments by considering the interactions of air quality and thermal conditions, as well as lighting and acoustics. Guideline 10 is especially important in the design of low-energy buildings in order to ensure full consideration of indoor environmental quality and its effects on occupants.

ASHRAE Guideline 10-2011, Interactions Affecting the Achievement of Acceptable Indoor Environments, calls attention to many interactions that designers might not have previously recognized or understood. The guideline contains an assembly of available knowledge on the complexity of the indoor environment and its impact on building occupants.

“The guideline summarizes what research and experience have taught us about the complex interplay of the wide range of factors that determine occupants’ reactions to the buildings they inhabit,” Hal Levin, chair of the committee writing the guideline, said.

Levin explains that the guideline is intended to help users understand and use existing documents that deal with indoor environments, including the ASHRAE standards related to energy, ventilation, indoor air quality and thermal conditions with a more complete understanding of their combined effects on occupants.

The cost of Guideline 10-2011, Interactions Affecting the Achievement of Acceptable Indoor Environments, is $54 ($46, ASHRAE members). To order visit www.ashrae.org/bookstore.
