hausdok Posted October 1, 2004 Report Share Posted October 1, 2004 Atlanta/Sept. 29,2004 Ã¢â¬â Maintaining that its residential ventilation standard sets a higher standard for indoor air quality, ASHRAE has proposed that it be included in the International Residential Code (IRC). This is the first time that the standard, published in December 2003, has been proposed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) for inclusion in a model code. ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings, is the only nationally recognized indoor air quality standard developed solely for residences. ASHRAE has proposed to the International Code Council (ICC) that Standard 62.2 be an alternate compliance path for the ventilation provisions of Sections R303.1 (lighting, ventilation, and heating) and M1506.1 (toilet room and bathroom ventilation) of the IRC. Ã¢â¬ÅASHRAE believes that ASHRAE 62.2 provides a higher standard for ventilation and indoor air quality than the current requirements of the International Residential Code,Ã¢â¬ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
