The Air Conditioning Contractors of America Educational Institute (ACCA-EI) Standards Task Team (STT) announces an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) public review period for the reaffirmation of ANSI/ACCA Standard 12 QH – 2018, Home Evaluation and Performance Improvement.
The 45-day ANSI public review period started on Jan. 5 with a comment deadline of Feb. 19. Per ANSI procedures, reaffirmations of existing standards must be announced for public comment every five years, even if no changes have been proposed.
This standard establishes minimum requirements to evaluate a residence with regard to energy efficiency, water conservation, occupant comfort, and indoor air quality.
From this evaluation, improvement opportunities are presented by a design practitioner to the client so that they can select improvements that meet their needs. This standard applies to site-constructed or manufactured one-and two-family dwellings, townhouses, and individual residential units in multifamily buildings.
