The standard would establish minimum HVAC inspection and maintenance requirements that aid a system's ability to achieve acceptable thermal comfort, energy efficiency and indoor air quality in commercial buildings. Standard180P is being developed jointly by ASHRAE and the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA).
This is a second review of the proposed standard. As a result of comments made during the first review period, a number of clarifications have been made to the standard, according to Robert Baker, chair of the Standard 180 committee.
This and other proposed standards generally are available for review on the ASHRAE website, along with calls for members to serve on various committees, publications, revisions and other matters pertaining to standards. Please see www.ashrae.org/publicreviews for these materials.
