A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 2014 was a great year for Dayton ASHRAE. We have a lot to be proud of and we continue to shine within the region. I want to take a moment to thank YOU for all of your support and donations. We held a President's Breakfast in December for all of the local HVAC related companies. I cannot tell you how proud I am to see the response we have received since that event. We have new members signing up left and right, companies eager to donate to RP and to sponsor our CRC in 2016, and we have a couple of new commemorative scholarships available for our local college students. Your willingness to be a part of this great success is truly inspiring.

The new year, for Dayton ASHRAE, brings new and exciting events. One of those events is our annual Holiday Dinner, which is set for January 17th at the Dayton Art Institute. Please see the invitation for more details and RSVP as soon as possible. The new location is sure to make it an eventful evening.

There are still many opportunities available to get involved with ASHRAE! Whether it is locally and/or nationally, use this involvement as an opportunity to broaden your networking reach, dive deeper into the industry, and obtain many forms of continued education. Please contact any of the Dayton ASRHAE Board Members and/or Officers for more information.

Let's keep our membership levels up, continue donating to Research Promotion/Scholarship, and work together to grow the success of Dayton ASHRAE!

2014 GREEN BUILDING STANDARD NOW AVAILABLE FROM ASHRAE/USGBC/IES

ATLANTA - New requirements to further reduce energy and environmental impacts of buildings are contained in the 2014 VERsion of the green building standard from ASHRAE, the U.S. Green Building Council and the Illuminating Engineering Society. ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1-2014, Standard for the Design of High-Performance, Green Buildings Except Low- Rise Residential Buildings, addresses the areas of site sustainability; water-use efficiency; energy efficiency; indoor environmental quality; and the building's impact on the atmosphere, materials and resources.

The 2014 standard incorporates 67 addenda, reflecting changes made through the public review process since the standard was last published in 2011. Appendix H gives brief descriptions and approval dates of the addenda included in this new edition. "The new standard updates all of its sections to reflect the latest information available to the committee," Andrew Persily, chair of the Standard 189.1 committee, said. "Compliance with these updated provisions will help further reduce energy and environmental impacts through high performance building design, construction and operation while providing indoor environments that support the activities of building occupants."

Major changes in the 2014 edition include:

Energy: Significant updates are included to reflect the publication of Standard 90.1-2013, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, including revised building envelope provisions. Fenestration orientation requirements were updated based on new research, as well as changes and updates made to equipment efficiency tables, ENERGYSTAR references and continuous air-barrier requirements.

Energy Performance, Carbon Dioxide Emissions, and Renewables: Changes and clarifications are included to reflect changes to Standard 90.1. Carbon dioxide emission factors for different energy sources are updated.

Indoor Environmental Quality: Lighting quality is added to the scope of this section, and requirements are added for lighting controls in specific space types. Requirements for air sealing of filtration and air-cleaning equipment are clarified, and new requirements for preoccupancy ventilation and building envelope moisture management are added.

Site Sustainability: All site requirements are now mandatory, with prescriptive and performance options moved to the mandatory requirements. Requirements for stormwater management are enhanced, and new requirements added for bicycle parking and for preferred parking for low-emission, hybrid and electric vehicles. New requirements are added for predesign assessment of native and invasive plants.

Water: More stringent water use requirements are included for toilets, clothes washers, dishwashers and green roofs. Building Impacts on the Atmosphere, Materials, and Resources: Requirements are updated for areas to store and collect recycla- bles, including batteries and electronics. Requirements also are updated for construction waste management and for life-cycle assessment. New requirements are added for multiple-attribute product declaration or certification and for maximum mercury content levels of certain types of electric lamps.

Construction and Plans for Operation: Requirements related to environmental impacts associated with idling construction vehicles are updated. New requirements are added to reduce the entry of airborne contaminants associated with construction areas.

The cost of ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1-2014, Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings, Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, is $128 ($109, ASHRAE members).

To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Contact Center at 1-800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide), fax 678-539-2129, or visit www.ashrae.org/bookstore.

ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a building technology society with more than 50,000 members worldwide. The Society and its members focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration and sustainability. Through research, standards writing, publishing, certification and continuing education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow's built environment today.

 


 

ASHRAE/IES PROPOSES EXPANSION OF CLIMATE ZONES FOR ENERGY STANDARD

ATLANTA - New proposed climate data could make the ASHRAE/IES energy standard more applicable for global use.

Addendum w is one of 10 proposed addenda to ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2013, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, open for public comment starting Dec 5, 2014. The proposed addendum closes for review Jan 19, 2015. To comment or learn more, visit www.ashrae.org/public reviews.

The addendum was developed in response to an update of ASHRAE Standard 169-2013, Climatic Data for Building Design Standards, which now contains updated climate data and additional Climate Zone 0 with humid (0A) and dry (0B) zones. Addendum w adds this climate zone to 90.1. This has global implications for the standard as Climate Zone 0 does not exist in the United States and is primarily used in the equatorial regions of South America, Africa, Middle East, southern Asia and the south Pacific.

"It gives the standard more of an international view with maps and data never before available to users," Dru Crawley, chair of the Standard 169 committee, said. "Previously there was the single U.S. map. Now there are high-level (1 deg latitude/longitude) maps of the world, covering each continent and major countries."

Other addenda open for public review from Dec 5, 2014, until Jan 4, 2015 are:

ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a building technology society with more than 50,000 members worldwide. The Society and its members focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration and sustainability. Through research, standards writing, publishing, certification and continuing education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow's built environment today.
