Standard Practice for Inspection and Maintenance of Commercial Building HVAC Systems
For the public good, it’s essential that the HVAC systems in buildings where people work, visit, or reside support a high-quality indoor environment. In addition, sustainability mandates that those conditions be maintained in a manner as energy efficient as possible.
Developed in collaboration with Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), ASHRAE Standard 180-2018 provides much-needed procedural consistency to improve the thermal comfort, efficiency, and indoor air quality of commercial HVAC systems.
The 2018 revision includes changes that make the standard easier to implement; adds new definitions to differentiate between inspection, maintenance, service, and repair tasks; and modifies the process section to better clarify how to initiate and implement a maintenance program.
Whether a commercial building’s HVAC systems have a state-of-art maintenance program, or no maintenance program at all, Standard 180 is formatted to serve every segment of ownership and all methods of inspection and maintenance work.
