  • TC 2.1 Physiology and Human Environment

    Scope
    Technical Committee 2.1 is concerned with the relationship of man's living environment, as altered by air-conditioning, heating and ventilating systems, to his comfort, health, and productivity.

  • TC 2.2 Plant and Animal Environment

    Scope
    Technical Committee 2.2 is concerned with the relationships of environmental conditions, as altered by air-conditioning, refrigeration, heating and ventilating systems, to the growth, health, and reproduction of plants and animals.

  • TC 2.3 Gaseous Air Contaminants and Gas Contaminant Removal Equipment

    Scope
    Technical Committee 2.3 is concerned with the nature of trace gaseous contaminants; the measurement of their properties; their effects on living things and materials; the means of removing unwanted contaminants from gases; and the effectiveness, energy usage, and economy of such purification equipment. The TC scope covers all aspects of odor technology, including odors which are produced by volatile particulate contaminants, but excludes purely physiological or psychological aspects of gaseous contaminants such as toxicology and odor perception (these are the province of TC 2.1). TC 2.3 is concerned with the effects of gaseous contaminants on the quality of air supplied to and exhausted from enclosed spaces and with the sources of gaseous contaminant pollution within such spaces.

  • TC 2.4 Particulate Air Contaminants and Particulate Contaminant Removal Equipment

    Scope
    Technical Committee 2.4 is concerned with identifying, evaluating, developing, and recommending procedures for calculating energy performance of the built environment..

  • TC 2.5 Global Climate Change

    Scope
    Technical Committee 2.5, Global Climate Change is concerned with the impact that activities of the HVAC&R industry may have on the global environment, including climate change and stratospheric ozone depletion.  This TC enhances ASHRAE member awareness of these impacts and coordinates activities and planning for the Society to address these issues. This includes identifying factors within the scope of the HVAC&R industry, which may impact favorably or unfavorably, the global environment and the role that ASHRAE serves.

  • TC 2.6 Sound and Vibration Control

    Scope
    Technical Committee 2.6 is concerned with the fundamental scientific and engineering principles of sound and vibration, particularly as applied to the design and performance of the built environment. .

  • TC 2.7 Seismic, Wind and Flood Resistant Design

    Scope
    Technical Committee 2.7 is concerned with fundamental scientific and engineering design principles for the resilient design of HVACR equipment and building mechanical/electrical/plumbing service systems for resistance to natural hazards including seismic, wind and flooding.

  • TC 2.8 Building Environmental Impacts and Sustainability

    Scope
    Technical Committee 2.8 is concerned with the environmental, social and economic impacts of buildings, including effects on ecosystem sustainability and the well-being of building occupants. The committee works to enhance awareness of these issues and the resiliency needed to adapt to a changing climate. Building impacts of concern include, but are not limited to, environmental impacts of energy and water production, conversion, delivery and use; availability of energy resources; pollution of air, water, and soil; and encroachment on sensitive habitats.

    NOTE: TC 1.10, Energy Resources and TG2.BIE, Buildings' Impact on the Environment merged during Tech Weekend, 2002. This merger created TC 2.8, Building Environmental Impacts and Sustainability.

  • TC 2.9 Ultraviolet Air and Surface Treatment

    Scope
    TC 2.9 is concerned with all aspects of equipment and systems that utilize ultraviolet radiation to destroy or deactivate chemical and/or biological air and surface contaminants in HVAC systems and indoor spaces, including, but not limited to, effectiveness, safety, maintenance and economics.
