What is ASHRAE 90.1?

ASHRAE 90.1 is a standard for measuring energy in commercial buildings. It covers many aspects of energy management, such as total consumption, HVAC and lighting systems, and individual circuits. For buildings over 10,000 square feet, with or without tenants, it is more cost effective to have multi-load, branch circuit, and high-density monitoring equipment. In buildings with tenants, both individual and total building usage need to be monitored every 15 minutes at a minimum and be recorded hourly, daily, monthly, and annually.

Air Quality and Ventilation Guidelines for Response to COVID-19 and Other Airborne Infections

Through the ever-evolving pandemic, there have been many regulations and guidelines given for how to make spaces safe when handling COVID-19. In general, the guidance for health care focuses on developing plans for both temporary AIIRs and individual spaces that are negatively pressurized. When creating these spaces, it is important to have a design where the air is exhausted directly outside where it can be diluted or that it passes through a HEPA filter that removes at least 99.97% of harmful particles before it is recirculated.
