The Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development have recognized ASHRAE guidance as a means for creating healthy homes.

Acting Surgeon General Steven K. Galson released The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Promote Healthy Homes, calling for Americans to prevent disease and promote healthy environments in homes. ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2007, Ventilation and Acceptable Indoor Air Quality in Low-Rise Residential Buildings, was recommended as an effective way to reduce indoor air pollution through ventilation in the CDC’s and HUD’s supporting guidance for builders and homeowners.

ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.2 helps ensure air inside homes is clean and safe by limiting sources of pollutants and requiring enough mechanical ventilation to provide dilution for unavoidable contaminants. The standard ensures that heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, and refrigeration systems work together to effectively ventilate homes and minimize sources of indoor pollution.
