HVAC Controls Guide for Plans Examiners and Building Inspectors

Ensuring compliance with HVAC control requirements is difficult, as controls can be difficult to identify on plans or in the building, yet it is a crucial task. HVAC controls are a key driver of building performance and without compliance and enforcement activities, the code requirements may be ignored, overlooked, or misunderstood.

This guide provides an aid that will make it easier to apply the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) control requirements found in building energy codes and addresses requirements defined by 2009 and 2012 editions of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 and ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010.
