"Let us not forget that 62-89 does not exist anymore, and hasn't for over a year.  I'm glad to see BPI finally adopt this current standard, and get the non-existant standard off their…"

"Hang in there, Pat.  Geez.  So much frustration!  If there is an existing fan venting into the structure of a cathedral ceiling or into the ceiling or into the attic, you know it is doing damage!  I worked on a house in NJ where…"

"most fans are rated without ducting attached.  a duct and a couple elbows will rapidly reduce a 100 cfm fan to 50 cfm.  at full speed.  that is why i said 100+ cfm fan."

"Thank you for this Paul.  I was on a webinar yesterday where either I heard the methodology for existing fans wrong,  or it was presented wrong.  Am I to understand from this that if an existing fan does not vent to outside, you must…"

Paul Raymer replied to Eric Timon's discussion BPI to Adopt ASHRAE Standard 62.2010?
"There is a great deal of furor about the ASHRAE 62.2-2010 Standard a lot of which comes from only looking at parts of the Standard.  Like a house, the Standard is a system and should be taken as a whole. Having said that, I want to look at a…"

Brennan Less replied to Eric Timon's discussion BPI to Adopt ASHRAE Standard 62.2010?
"Pat, you will almost never need a 100 cfm continuous fan to meet 62.2, unless the home is very large (>3,500 ft2).  Whole house mechanical ventilation rates are on the order of 0.17 ACH, which is usually in the 35-60 cfm range.  Much…"

"Sure 89 is toast & 62.2's formula is (Total square foot of a home/100) + (Number of bedrooms + 1) x 7.5 cfm)Now if you want to delve into a ton of the arguments about it - Carl Seville posted an interesting email thread about it as it…"
