New 62.1 Procedure Focus of ASHRAE 2005 Course

05/23/2005


ASHRAE members this summer will have the opportunity to learn about using the overhauled ventilation rate procedure in Standard 62.1, the focus of a short course at ASHRAE’s 2005 Annual Meeting in Denver next month.

The course, Complying with Requirements of ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2004 , will be held from 2-5 p.m. Tuesday, June 28. The rate procedure is one of many changes to ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2004, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality . Course instructor Hoy Bohanon, P.E., said the procedure makes it more straightforward for designers to determine rates and reduces the potential for over-ventilation in some densely occupied spaces.

“Using the procedure gives you a better balance,” he explained. “You get a more accurate balance of indoor air quality and energy efficiency by doing the more precise calculations.”

The procedure bases ventilation requirements on the number of people a space is expected to hold, as well as the space's floor area, and is used to calculate minimum outdoor ventilation requirements for a building ventilation system.
