The extensive code system is discussed, and the voluntary standards upon which the codes are usually based. While the codes set out the mandatory requirements, the standards are voluntary only. Some of the important background, research and philosophy of the standards are covered, as well as other information which has been offerred to users to promote the voluntary use of energy conserving strategies which are compatable with acceptable indoor air quality.
