ASHRAE 62.

2 Whole House V

Purpose: This calculator is intended to determine the required whole house ventilation fan flow ra

Instructions:
A. Enter the necessary data into the green "Inputs" section of the calculator (Cells C15 through C3
B. Fix any inputs causing errors, as necessary. (cells B5:H8)
C. The resulting required whole house flow rate, in cfm, is given in cell C11:12.

Caveats:
1. Assumes local exhaust ventilation, if any, is "intermittent", not "continuous". (if local exhaust sy
2. Assumes exhaust fan flow rates are measured or assumed to be zero (if not, refer to standard)

3. Assumes no window opening credit (C3.2).


4. Doesn't adjust for temperature or elevation
5. Assumes flow coefficient of 0.65
