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 its BSR/ACCA 12 QH -201x, "Home Evaluation and Performance Improvement" as a revised industry standard. The 45 day public review period started on July 19, 2013 with a comment deadline of September 2, 2013.

Changes to the current standard are indicated in the text by underline for additions and strikethrough for deletions. Notes on the movement of various sections have been included as comment boxes for clarification. The red-line changes to the normative portions of the standard (§1 - §7 and Appendix A) are open for review and comment. Unchanged portions of the document are provided for context.
