Ventilation Rates

07/17/2012 5:30 PM

Ventilation rates given by ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2004 and the International mechanical code are different, with the latter being usually more than the former. Also, one is a standard while one is code that is required. Nonetheless, which value is it good engineering practice to use?

As far as I know, we are not required to use the "International Mechanical Code" (what is the body that produces this?) in Canada. In our designs, we use ASHRAE 62.1 - 2007.

Given that ASHRAE is developed by engineers, and IMC is by Building Code Officials, I would suspect engineers would advise going with ASHRAE...

Generally ASHRAE standards are preferred. You can still consult the local government codes if any available and compare it and take decision in consultation with experienced consultants.
