The explanatory material, detailed information, figures, and examples contained within this User's Manual are provided to aid the user in designing, installing, and operating buildings in accordance with Standard 62.1-2010.

  • Offers information on the intent and application of Standard 62.1-2010;
  • Explains the standard through the use of sample calculations and examples;
  • Encourages the user to apply the principles of good indoor air quality and effective ventilation when designing buildings and building systems;
  • Provides useful reference material to assist designers in efficiently completing a successful and compliant design;

This Manual also instructs the user in the application of tools used for compliance with Standard 62.1-2010. In particular, three newly revised spreadsheets are distributed with this User's Manual that assist in the Ventilation Rate Procedure calculations.
