ASHRAE STD 55
Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy
|Publication Date:||29 January 2021|
Addendum h to Standard 55-2017 updates normative references to updated versions of ASHRAE publications and also replaces the normative reference to the ASHRAE Thermal Comfort Tool. The current reference to the ASHRAE Thermal Comfort Tool v2 has not been valid for Standard 55 since the 2010 version of the Standard. In the body of the standard, all instances of "ASHRAE Thermal Comfort Tool" have been replaced with "Thermal Comfort Tool." The normative reference in Section 8 has been replaced with a reference to the CBE Thermal Comfort Tool, which is valid with Standard 55-2017 and all subsequent addenda. This version will also be kept up to date with all approved future addenda. In addition to the Thermal Comfort Tool reference changes, normative references to Standards 90.1, 62.1, and 62.2 have been updated to the latest versions. Standards 62.1 and 62.2 are only referenced in Figures 220.127.116.11A, 18.104.22.168B, and 5.3.2.B, which were added by Addendum d. Finally, the references to ASHRAE Handbook-Fundamentals have been updated to the relevant sections of the most current version of the Handbook and consolidated to a single reference. The text as modified below reflects changes previously made to the standard by Addendum d.
Note: In this addendum, changes to the current standard are indicated in the text by underlining (for additions) and (for deletions) unless the instructions specifically mention some other means of indicating the changes.
