Interpretations for Standard 62-2001

It must also include individual sensor and transmitter uncertainties. In such cases, twice the amount of outside air as indicated in Table 2 would be required for acceptable indoor air quality.

In reality, this latter scenario describes most facilities and suggests that outside airflow rates are directly set by the HVAC system based on design parameters, prior to occupancy. The construction phase, section 7.

The air cleaning system efficiency for the troublesome contaminants present, both gaseous and particulate, may be adequate to satisfy the Indoor Air Quality criteria of 6.

Net neutral control requires more precise instrumentation and the margin of error is much smaller. In addition, the section should strongly encourage the use of airflow measuring devices in critical zones of VAV systems for the continuous calculation and reset of the multi-space equation defined in section 6.

Anything that changes the pressurization flow will result in fluctuations in building pressure. There is the potential for condensation to occur under a positive pressure environment during periods of humidification in cold climates since the dew point of the air within the building could potentially be greater than the temperature of the building envelope.

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 asrhae various means to condition that air.

Outside airflow rates can also be reduced if the critical zones have variable occupancy.

This will be a significant improvement since ahsrae large portion of the dilution air required for acceptable IAQ is needed to dilute contaminants generated independently of the occupants and their activities. Therefore methods that lag occupancy such as CO2 DCV should be carefully considered prior to implementation. CO2 monitoring should only be considered “where only dilution ventilation is used to control indoor air quality. Great care should be given to the selection between these procedures.

Asbrae pressurization airflow relationship is as follows: They should also evaluate the IAQ risk of their design. 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 stansard.

Of course, provision for ashraw mounted airflow measurement devices and controls would significantly reduce both the cost and time associated with such changes as long as the HVAC load capacity could accommodate future requirements.

Recirculation with air-cleaning systems is also an effective means for controlling contaminants when using the Indoor Air Quality Procedure. In addition, the HVAC system must be able to maintain occupied spaces at positive pressure with respect to the construction areas.

Once again, permanent airflow measuring stations would provide continuous outdoor airflow verification and provide necessary control inputs for an acceptable indoor environment. This can be accomplished by determining the critical zone fraction, Z, to calculate the corrected fraction of outdoor air, Y.

Understanding and assessing the potential risk as well as the ability to provide a functional solution is the duty of the design professional. The principal comment regarding 6. Ventilation effectiveness is discussed in 6. Since airflow rates are typically reduced in the Indoor Air Quality Procedure, its measurement and control is even more critical, especially on systems asheae the thermal load changes independent of the occupants and their activities.


Whenever the temperature of a building envelope is lower than the dew point of air migrating across it, there will be condensation. Designers should provide an acceptable indoor environment to maintain occupant productivity and health. Although ashfae devices may be adequate for modulating a box for thermal comfort, the combination of low quality airflow pickups and low cost pressure sensors in the DDC controller will not result in the measurement accuracy necessary for proper calculation of equation Designers must choose and claim compliance under one procedure, not a combination of both.

The allowable contaminant concentration in the occupied zone can be used with various system models in Appendix [D] to compute the required outdoor air flow rate. It is also not practical to measure all potential contaminants and in some cases, such as with fungus or mold, measurement may not be possible. Designers must consider the condition of the existing ventilation system and its ability to maintain a pressurized environment prior to initiating the construction phase of a project.

However, there are numerous risks associated with both the quantitative and subjective evaluations provided within the procedure that every designer should be aware of. The assumptions made to conclude that a 15 CFM per person rate is actually maintained when the ppm rise is detected are considerable.

Airflow sensors provided with VAV boxes should not be used for this calculation. The section provides guidelines for air balancing, testing of drain pans, ventilation system start-up, testing of damper controls, and documentation requirements. Studies have indicated that a ventilation rate of 15 CFM per person is adequate to dilute body odor.
