Update: ASHRAE 62.2

Following the ASHRAE Board of Directors approval of Addendum ‘A’ (restricting vent-free appliances in ASHRAE-compliant homes to the point they are essentially not allowed), those who were opposed to the addendum are working towards an appeal. However, in January, the 62.2 Committee introduced a new motion to ban vent-free appliances in 62.2-compliant homes outright. The vote was sent out for letter ballot. If successful, the ban would render Addendum ‘A’ unnecessary. Initial polling for the ban indicates probable approval of the measure. If successful, the ban would likely be appealed.
