Designers should provide an acceptable indoor stndard to maintain occupant productivity and health. Mechanical ventilation systems shall include either manual or automatic controls that enable the fan system to operate whenever the spaces served are occupied.

Interpretations for Standard

Clearly airflow rates are part of this procedure. Mechanical barriers should protect occupied areas to protect them from construction-generated contaminants.

Designers should be cautious when using CO2 measurement as the sole source of verification of outdoor airflow rates. In reality, most systems require permanent airflow measurement devices to assure compliance with the standard.

The start-up phase, covered in section 7. The critical space is that space with the greatest required fraction of outdoor air in the supply to this space.

Variable occupancy can either be detected by a. Ventilation code enforcement has proven to be difficult because it is often misunderstood by the code enforcement agency in the local jurisdiction. Recirculation with air-cleaning systems is also an effective means for controlling contaminants when using the Indoor Air Quality Procedure.

They should 62-001 evaluate the IAQ risk of their design. The widespread use of energy recovery ventilators ERV in some geographic areas has decreased the amount of outside air used to pressurize a building. Recirculation criteria are defined in 6. However, the uncertainty of aahrae techniques introduces a significant level of risk.

Standard 62 has been incorporated into many building codes. It is important to stanfard that if the building is altered or its use is changed, the ventilation system must be reevaluated.

If properly executed, one out of five occupants may express dissatisfaction as a result of poor indoor wshrae quality. Understanding and assessing the potential risk as well as the ability to provide a functional solution is the duty of the design professional.

Interpretations for Standard 62-2001

Many systems cannot meet the minimum airflow requirements at stnadard occupied space during operation as a result of the dynamic nature of mechanical ventilation system and external factors on the building envelope. Where more than one space is served by a common supply system, the ratio of outdoor air to supply air required to satisfy the ventilation and standdard control requirements may differ from space to space.

The concept of providing “a direct solution” is desirable in principle.

If cleaned [filtered], recirculated air is used to reduce the outdoor air flow rate below the values shown in Table 2, the [Indoor] Air Quality Procedure, 6. ASHRAE Standard 62 is a short, but often misinterpreted, document outlining ventilation requirements for acceptable indoor air quality.

The Ventilation Rate Procedure “prescribes the rate at which ventilation air must be delivered to a space and various means to condition that air. Outside airflow rates can also be reduced if the critical zones have variable occupancy.


Net neutral control requires more precise instrumentation and the margin of error is much smaller. Typically, the pressurization airflow, QP, is maintained at a fixed differential, regardless of the supply airflow rate required for temperature control.

For systems that provide a constant volume of supply air to the conditioned space, outside airflow rates will vary as a result of a.

Designers must consider the condition of the existing ventilation system and its ability to maintain a pressurized environment prior to initiating the construction phase of a project.

The assumptions made to conclude that a 15 CFM per person rate is actually maintained when the ppm rise is detected are considerable. Increasing the critical zone supply flow by providing reheat can reduce total outside airflow rates.

ASHRAE Standard 62-2001

The calculation requires that the total supply airflow rate measured, QSA, usually with an airflow measuring station standxrd the total supply air circuit and the airflow rate of the critical zones is measured with an airflow measuring station capable of accurate measurement. Ventilation effectiveness is discussed in 6.

It is also not practical to measure all potential contaminants and in some cases, such as with fungus or mold, measurement may not adhrae possible.
