About This Item

 

Full Description

ASHRAE Standard 55 specifies conditions for acceptable thermalenvironments and is intended for use in design, operation, and commissioning ofbuildings and other occupied spaces.

The 2020 edition of ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55 incorporates eight publishedaddenda to the 2017 edition. This version steers users toward the analyticalmethod (and companion elevated airspeed method) and replaces the graphicalmethod with a series of examples that use the analytical method. With multiple freelyavailable third-party implementations of the analytical method, barriers to itsuse have been greatly reduced, allowing for greater flexibility and accuracythan with the graphical method.

The standard includes a separate adaptive model for determiningacceptable thermal conditions in occupant-controlled naturally conditioned spaces,with newly expanded applicability in this version. Users are now allowed to usethe adaptive model when an air-conditioning unit is installed but notoperating.

Other noteworthy additions to the standard include the additionof a new method for the avoidance of draft risk at the ankle region, as well asnew Thermal Environmental Control Classification Levels that document how muchcontrol an occupant has over their thermal environment. These levels were addedto Section 6 of the standard and are required elements of documentingcompliance with Standard 55.
