Professional Education Seminar (PES)

Clearing the Air: A Comprehensive Exploration of What’s New in the World of ASHRAE and the Landscape of Filtration, Indoor Air Quality, and Decarbonization

This presentation aims to provide a high-level examination of ASHRAE standards and guidelines and the latest revisions, releases, and developments. Key ASHRAE advancements will be spotlighted, providing insights into how these standards and guidelines will contribute to shaping advanced strategies for filtration, indoor air quality and decarbonization.
This presentation will delve into topics including:
The approval and release of ASHRAE Standard 241 “Control of Infectious Aerosols” and the introduction of new concepts such as Equivalent Clean Airflow Rate, a novel approach that considers the cumulative impact of outdoor airflow, indoor air filtration, and air disinfection technologies.

Background and key aspects of ASHRAE Guideline 44P “Protecting Building Occupants from Smoke During Wildfire and Prescribed Burn Events” covering proposed recommendations for building measures related to the design, installation, commissioning, operation, and maintenance of building envelope, ventilation, and air cleaning systems.
Notable changes to ASHRAE Standard 170 “Ventilation of Health Care Facilities” highlighting ventilation system design and updated language to filtration placement and MERV rating requirements.

Notable changes to ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2022 “Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality” including the addition of defined design contaminants for use in the mass balance equations for easier application of the Indoor Air Quality Procedure.

The development of new test method standards such as Standard 185.5P “Method of Testing HVAC-duct mounted Devices and Systems and In-Room devices for Particle and Microorganism Removal or Inactivation in a Chamber with a Recirculating Duct System” Standard 145.4P “Method of Test for Assessing the Gas-Phase Performance of Air Cleaning Devices and Systems in a Duct-Chamber Apparatus” and their anticipated use in ASHRAE standards to promote proper use and implementation of air cleaning technologies.
