Languages: English

In January 1999 ASHRAE's Standard Project Committee on "Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings", SPC 62.2P, approved ASHRAE's first complete standard on residential ventilation for public review and it was subsequently approved for release by ASHRAE. The standard is an attempt by the Society to address concerns over indoor air quality in dwellings and to set minimum standards that would allow for energy efficiency measures to be evaluated. The standard has requirements for whole-house ventilation, local exhaust ventilation, and source control. In addition to codeintended requirements, the standard also contains guidance information for the designer and/or user of the standard. This report summarizes the draft standard and attempts to address questions and concerns that those potentially affected by the standard might have. This report may also be of use to those considering public review comments on the draft standard.
