"Yeah, most places don't have a requirement for ventilation in the code, and those that do often don't enforce it. Also, I mentioned that 62.2 is based on CFA and number of bedrooms, but there is a hidden ACH behind the calculations. Max…"

Allison A. Bailes III replied to Bud Poll's discussion Basing air exchange on house volume??
"Bud, if your local or state codes do have requirements for ventilation, they're almost certainly based on ASHRAE 62.2. The 2010 version is still being used in most places that call for it, I believe, but the 2013 version is out there, too.…"

In mid-August, executive director Steve Baden sent an email about the latest developments in the process. He also attached a document titled…
