Ventilation for acceptable indoor air quality.

Author(s) : ASHRAE

Type of monograph: Standard/Recommendation


This standard supersedes ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2007 and includes ANSI/ASHRAE addenda listed in Appendix J. Its purpose is to specify minimum ventilation rates and other measures intended to provide indoor air quality that will be acceptable to human occupants and is intended to minimize adverse health effects. It is ASHRAE's standard for indoor air quality for commercial buildings. The 2010 revision adds new minimum filtration/air-cleaning requirements, minimum requirements for when ventilation systems must be operated, and a natural ventilation procedure. Other revisions include a more robust IAQ procedure, demand-controlled ventilation system design requirements, requirements for separation of intakes and exhausts, and ventilation rates and occupancy categories.
