It is unlikely that all contaminants of concern will be evaluated or reduced to acceptable levels. The start-up phase, covered in section 7. VAV systems with fixed outdoor air damper positions may not meet this requirement. This is a significant advantage over differential pressure airflow measuring technologies various pitot tube arrays and airflow measuring dampers and CO2 sensors, whose transmitters are often subject to drift.
Interpretations for Standard 62-2001
It incorporates both quantitative and subjective evaluation. In reality, most systems require permanent airflow measurement devices to assure compliance with the standard. CO2 is an indicator of human activities and hence “bioeffluents” and not a measure of indoor air quality. Unfortunately, almost every facility has contaminants generated from within the space i. Mechanical systems with dehumidification capability shall comply with the following: The widespread use of energy recovery ventilators ERV in some ashhrae areas has decreased the amount of outside air used to pressurize a building.
Interpretations for Standard
However, it neglects the significant influence of external pressure variations on all systems that result from changes in wind and stack pressures, which often exceeds 0. The International Mechanical Code has adopted a rigid interpretation of the Ventilation Rate Procedure of the parent document and requires devices and controls to maintain per person ventilation requirements at all load conditions.
Unfortunately there is no “cookbook” solution to ventilation for IAQ. Since airflow rates are typically reduced in the Indoor Air Quality Procedure, its measurement and control is even more critical, especially on systems where the thermal load changes independent of the occupants and their activities.
Anything that changes the pressurization flow will result in fluctuations in building pressure. Once again, permanent airflow measuring stations would provide continuous outdoor airflow verification and provide necessary control inputs for an acceptable indoor environment. It should be clear to the design professional that the dynamic nature of mechanical ventilation requires dynamic control.

The Ventilation Rate Procedure “prescribes the rate at which ventilation air must be delivered to a space and various means to condition that air. The purpose of ASHRAE Standard ashraw, as defined in Section 1, is to “specify minimum ventilation rates and indoor air quality that will be acceptable to human occupants and are intended to minimize the potential for adverse health effects.
Systems that provide a variable volume of supply air to the conditioned space are influence by everything previously mentioned. This can be accomplished by determining the critical zone fraction, Z, to calculate the corrected fraction of outdoor air, Y.
In addition, outside airflow rates will vary as a result of changes in mixed air plenum pressure. Section 3 addresses definitions used within the standard. Consideration should be given for a limited night setback mode with provision for humidity and pressurization control.
ASHRAE Standard 62-2001
For systems that provide a constant volume of supply air to the conditioned space, outside airflow rates will vary as a result of a. Mechanical barriers should protect occupied areas to srandard them from construction-generated contaminants.
Conversely, “When contaminants are generated in the space or conditioning system independent of occupants or their ashrqe, supply of outdoor air should lead occupancy sshrae that acceptable conditions will exist at the start of occupancy. For example, studies have shown that gases such as formaldehyde, which are present in many common office materials, may not be adequately diluted under CO2 DCV strategies without an extensive pre-purge cycle prior to occupancy.
Designers should provide an acceptable indoor environment to maintain occupant productivity and health. The 622001 airflow relationship is as follows: Great care should be given to the selection between these procedures. Present motivation to design to the standard has been driven mostly by liability and risk management concerns and in some cases the desire of the design professionals to meet their obligation by designing to national, professional standards.
Section 7 addresses the construction and start-up phases of the project and has been included because a significant number of documented IAQ cases were a result of activities, which took ashrqe during these phases of the project.
All of these variations can be compensated for by using an airflow 62-20001 station at the intake to the air-handling unit with automatic controls. Because many systems, especially VAV, have thermal load requirements that differ from the ventilation requirements for acceptable IAQ, the requirements of this section can only be realized if the multi-space equation is calculated under design and minimum supply flows to individual zones using the minimum outdoor air requirements to each zone.
Advanced VAV control strategies can satisfy the requirements of 6. Also, caution should 62–2001 exercised when reducing outside airflow rates since outside air is required to maintain proper building pressure. Once more the Standard attempts to clear up the misunderstandings about CO2. All systems constructed or renovated after the adoption date of the parent document are required to be operated and maintained in accordance to the provisions set forth in this section of the standard.
Therefore, maintenance of minimum outdoor airflow defined in section 6 essentially requires the use of permanent devices capable of maintaining outdoor 62-001 rates for compliance. Asnrae 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 thermal control requirements may differ from space to space. The lack of specific guidelines to effectively overcome the effect of changing system dynamics 62-20001 ventilation rates and distribution for today’s HVAC systems is partially to blame for design deficiencies.
According to this procedure, 6. Whether or not it explicitly requires airflow measuring devices or not is irrelevant. The principal comment regarding 6.
ASHRAE Standard 62 is a short, but often misinterpreted, document outlining ventilation requirements for acceptable indoor air quality.
Using the steady-state model described in Appendix C of the Standard, 15 CFM per person would be the resulting quantity of outside air introduced into a space if a. The assumptions made to conclude that a 15 CFM per person rate is stanndard maintained when the ppm rise is detected are considerable. Although this may sound impractical to some designers, the productivity and health benefits is far greater than the cost to satisfy the requirements for acceptable indoor air quality.
In such cases, twice the amount of outside air as indicated in Table 2 would be required for acceptable indoor air quality.
