ASHRAE’s Most Used Standards Available on One CD


They are being billed as “ASHRAE’s Greatest Hits”—the association’s 12 top selling standards and guidelines now available on a single CD. To order

Design Essentials: ASHRAE’s Most Referenced Standards and Guidelines contains a library of documents that can be easily searched and printed with copy and paste features for text and graphics. The standards and guidelines address design or system operations, and most are code-intended standards.

“Because ASHRAE standards/guidelines often refer to requirements in other standards, our documents need to be used together in order to understand the means for compliance with any one of them,” Rick Hermans, chair of ASHRAE’s Standards Committee, said. “The Design Essentials CD is intended to make that process simpler for the user.”

Hermans noted that the standards and guidelines included in the CD serve as the basis for HVAC&R design and some of them are referenced in building codes. Included are the following:

•ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 15-2004, Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems;

•ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 34-2004,Designation and Safety Classification of Refrigerants;

•ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 52.2-1999,Method of Testing General Ventilation Air-Cleaning Devices for Removal Efficiency by Particle Size;

•ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55-2004, Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy;

•ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2004, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality;

•ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2004, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings;

•ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2004, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (I-P edition);

•ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 90.2-2004,Energy-Efficient Design of Low-Rise Residential Buildings;

•ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 135-2004,BACnet

•ASHRAE Guideline 0-2005, The Commissioning Process;

•ASHRAE Guideline 1-1996, The HVAC Commissioning Process;
