ASHRAE Looks At Making Handbook More “Sustainable”

September 21, 2006

To help engineers respond to environmental challenges, ASHRAE is working to ensure guidance on sustainable design is incorporated in its Handbook.

ASHRAE is conducting a review of the sustainability content of all Handbook chapters and is looking at writing a new chapter on sustainability with a view toward integrated building design in its Fundamentals volume.

The ASHRAE Handbook is the most widely used reference book in the HVAC&R industry for system design, application and equipment operation and maintenance.

To give feedback on incorporating sustainable design guidance in the ASHRAE Handbook, visit the “comment on the Handbook section” at www.ashrae.org/handbook.
