Poor indoor air quality can adversely impact the health, comfort and productivity of patients and staff. When they are inappropriately designed, installed or maintained, HVAC systems may contribute excessive energy consumption or longer hospital stays and complications for patients. The third edition of the standard, one in a series of Standards on the design, construction and maintenance of health care facilities, sets out the special requirements for HVAC systems.

Highlights of Z317.2:

  • Provides requirements for HVAC systems in health care facilities
  • Specifies minimum values for certain parameters; establishes the suitability of different design options; establishes recommendations for zoning, controls, and monitoring; and sets targets for energy conservation
  • Applies to new buildings, additions to existing buildings, and alterations to existing buildings
