BPI seeks public input on HVAC market standards
The Building Performance Institute is seeking public comment on two proposed HVAC construction standards that have recently been accepted by the American National Standards Institute.
The first is a proposed update to “Standard Practice for the Standardized Qualification of Whole-House Energy Savings Predictions by Calibration to Energy Use History,” aka the Delta standard.
It specifies a calculation process of standardized predicted savings by using the difference (delta) between the modeled energy usage before and after upgrades using approved building energy use simulation software.
The second is a proposal a new ANSI standard quantifying savings from HVAC market energy efficiency retrofits at the “portfolio” level. “Protocol for Quantifying Energy Efficiency Savings in Residential Buildings,” is co-sponsored by the Air Conditioning Contractors of America and BPI.
