  1. ANSI/ASHRAE 15-2010 Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems and Standard 34-2010 Designation and Classification of Refrigerants cover images

    ANSI/ASHRAE 15-2010 Safety Standard for Refrigeration Systems and Standard 34-2010 Designation and Classification of Refrigerants (PDF Download)

    Referenced in the 2012 IMC, IRC. ASHRAE Standard 15-2010 establishes safeguards for life, limb, health, and property and prescribes safety requirements. This standard is directed toward the safety of persons and property on or near the premises where refrigeration facilities are located. It includes specifications for fabrication of tight systems but does not address the effects of refrigerant emissions on the environment. This standard applies to: a) the design, construction, test, installation, operation, and inspection of mechanical and absorption refrigeration systems, including heat pump systems used in stationary applications; b) modifications including replacement of parts or components if they are not identical in function and capacity; and c) substitutions of refrigerant having a different designation.

    The 2010 edition removes Appendices B and G from and incorporates Addenda a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, and i into ASHRAE Standard 15-2007. While the user of this document should be familiar with the entire standard, its organization into the following sections allows faster location of information. The topics included in these sections are: GENERAL (Sections 1-6): Purpose, Scope, Definitions, Occupancy Classification, Refrigerating System Classification, Refrigerant Classification, Precedence with Conflicting Requirements, Listed Equipment.

    RESTRICTIONS (Sections 7-8): Restrictions on Refrigerant Use, Installation Restrictions.

    DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION (Section 9): Materials, System Design Pressure, Refrigerant-Containing Pressure Vessels, Pressure Relief Protection, Setting of Pressure-Relief Devices, Marking of Pressure-Relief Devices and Fusible Plugs, Pressure Vessel Protection, Positive Displacement Compressor Protection, Pressure-Limiting Devices, Refrigerant Piping, Valves, Fittings and Related Parts, Components Other than Pressure Vessels and Piping, Service Provisions, Fabrication, Factory Tests, and Nameplate.

    OPERATION AND TESTING (Section 10): Field Tests, General Requirements.

  2. 2009 ASHRAE Handbook Fundamentals cover image

    2009 ASHRAE Handbook Fundamentals (PDF Download)

    Referenced in the 2012 IECC, IMC, IRC. The 2009 ASHRAE Handbook: Fundamentals covers basic principles and data used in the HVAC&R industry. Updated with research sponsored by ASHRAE and others, this volume includes 1,000 pages and 39 chapters covering general engineering information, basic materials, climate data, load and energy calculations, duct and pipe design, and sustainability, plus reference tables for abbreviations and symbols, I-P to SI conversions, and physical properties of materials.

  3. ANSI/ASHRAE/ACCA 180—-2008 Standard Practice for Inspection and Maintenance of Commercial Building HVAC Systems cover image

    ANSI/ASHRAE/ACCA 180—-2008 Standard Practice for Inspection and Maintenance of Commercial Building HVAC Systems (PDF Download)

    Referenced in the 2012 IMC, IRC. Standard 180 was created in a collaborative effort between ASHRAE and ACCA, the Air Conditioning Contractors of America. Its intent is to address the often inconsistent practices for inspecting and maintaining HVAC systems in commercial, institutional and other buildings where the public may be exposed to the indoor environment. Current practices in such buildings vary widely today. Many facilities choose to follow rigorous policies that maintain the system in new or nearly new condition. Others either lack policy in this area or have adopted a run-to-failure approach where the system or components of the system are attended to only when there is a failure.
    NOTE: This standard is specifically focused on the impacts of maintenance on occupant thermal comfort, indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Ancillary maintenance issues related to equipment reliability, equipment robustness and minimizing overall maintenance costs are also appropriate in order to protect the HVAC capital investment and/or minimize system downtime. These issues, however, are outside of the scope of this standard.

  4. ANSI/ASHRAE 62.1-2010 Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality cover image

    ANSI/ASHRAE 62.1-2010 Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality (PDF Download)

    Referenced in 2012 IEBC and IMC. The purpose of this standard 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. 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. This standard applies to all indoor or enclosed spaces that people may occupy, except where other applicable standards and requirements dictate larger amounts of ventilation than this standard. Release of moisture in residential kitchens and bathrooms, locker rooms, and swimming pools are included in the scope of this standard. Additional requirements for laboratory, industrial, 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 considers chemical, physical, and biological contaminants that can affect air quality. Thermal comfort requirements are not included in this standard.
