An Introduction to ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55

ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55 defines the range of indoor thermal environmental conditions acceptable to

the majority of occupants. An understanding of this standard is integral to the design of a new building

or renovation, as it accommodates a variety of comfort solutions that contribute to sustainable building.

This presentation will provide an introduction to Standard 55 which explains thermal comfort

requirements and how they affect design. It will also look at the changes incorporated in the newly-

published 2013 version of the standard.


Learning Objectives:


  1. Understand the purpose of ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55 and how the Standard impacts sustainable design.
  2. Learn how to energy-efficiently meet comfort standards in both air-conditioned and naturally conditioned spaces.
  3. Describe how to determine and document compliance with comfort standards in various environments.
  4. Identify the updates to Standard 55-2013 and how they accommodate design solutions in sustainable building.
