Transient Occupancy Ventilation By Monitoring CO 2

  title={Transient Occupancy Ventilation By Monitoring CO 2},
  author={Stanley A. Mumma},
21 ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62-2001, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality, has produced an industry devoted to utilizing ventilation reset, thus reducing the energy used to condition OA, based generally upon holding the space with the highest CO2 concentration at or below about 1,000 ppm. For example, a space designed for 40 people where each person is to receive 20 cfm (9.4 L/s) has a required ventilation rate of 800 cfm (378 L/s). If the occupancy drops to 20 people, dynamic reset would… Expand
