Description :

This standard applies to spaces intended for human occupancy within buildings except those within dwelling units in residential occupancies in which occupants are nontransient.

This standard defines requirements for ventilation and air-cleaning-system design, installation, commissioning, and operation and maintenance.

Additional requirements for laboratory, industrial, health care, and other spaces may be dictated by workplace and other standards, as well as by the processes occurring within the space.

Although the standard may be applied to both new and existing buildings, the provisions of this standard are not intended to be applied retroactively when the standard is used as a mandatory regulation or code.

This standard does not prescribe specific ventilation rate requirements for spaces that contain smoking or that do not meet the requirements in the standard for separation from spaces that contain smoking. 2.6 Ventilation requirements of this standard are based on chemical, physical, and biological contaminants that can affect air quality.

Consideration or control of thermal comfort is not included.

This standard contains requirements, in addition to ventilation, related to certain sources, including outdoor air, construction processes, moisture, and biological growth.

Acceptable indoor air quality may not be achieved in all buildings meeting the requirements of this standard for one or more of the following reasons:

a. Because of the diversity of sources and contaminants in indoor air

b. Because of the many other factors that may affect occupant perception and acceptance of indoor air quality, such as air temperature, humidity, noise, lighting, and psychological stress

c. Because of the range of susceptibility in the population

d. Because outdoor air brought into the building may be unacceptable or may not be adequately cleaned

Description :

GENERAL

This appendix presents an alternative procedure for determining separation distance between outdoor air intakes and exhaust air and vent outlets. This analytical method can be used instead of Table 5.5.1.

Exhaust air and vent outlets, as defined in Table 5.5.1, shall be located no closer to outdoor air intakes, and operable windows, skylights, and doors, both those on the subject property and those on adjacent properties, than the minimum separation distance (L) specified in this section. The distance (L) is defined as the shortest “stretched string” distance measured from the closest point of the outlet opening to the closest point of the outdoor air intake opening or operable window, skylight, or door opening, along a trajectory as if a string were stretched between them.

Description :

This standard applies to all spaces intended for human occupancy except those within single-family houses, multi-family structures of three stories or fewer above grade, vehicles, and aircraft. 2.2 This standard defines requirements for ventilation and air-cleaning-system design, installation, commissioning, and operation and maintenance. 

Additional requirements for laboratory, industrial, health care, and other spaces may be dictated by workplace and other standards, as well as by the processes occurring within the space.

Although the standard may be applied to both new and existing buildings, the provisions of this standard are not intended to be applied retroactively when the standard is used as a mandatory regulation or code.

This standard does not prescribe specific ventilation rate requirements for spaces that contain smoking or that do not meet the requirements in the standard for separation from spaces that contain smoking. 

Ventilation requirements of this standard are based on chemical, physical, and biological contaminants that can affect air quality. 

Consideration or control of thermal comfort is not included. 

This standard contains requirements, in addition to ventilation, related to certain sources, including outdoor air, construction processes, moisture, and biological growth. 

Acceptable indoor air quality may not be achieved in all buildings meeting the requirements of this standard for one or more of the following reasons:

a. Because of the diversity of sources and contaminants in indoor air

b. Because of the many other factors that may affect occupant perception and acceptance of indoor air quality, such as air temperature, humidity, noise, lighting, and psychological stress

c. Because of the range of susceptibility in the population d. Because outdoor air brought into the building may be unacceptable or may not be adequately cleaned.

PURPOSE 

The purpose of this standard is to specify minimum ventilation rates and other measures intended to provide indoor air quality that is acceptable to human occupants and that minimizes adverse health effects. 

This standard is intended for regulatory application to new buildings, additions to existing buildings, and those changes to existing buildings that are identified in the body of the standard. 

This standard is intended to be used to guide the improvement of indoor air quality in existing buildings.
