ASHRAE 62-2004 recommended minimum Outdoor Air Flow

  • Range 15 - 60 cfm per person
  • Most common range 15 - 35 cfm per person
  • Average range 15 - 20 cfm per person

ASHRAE 62-2004 recommended maximum CO2 Concentration

  • Outdoor background level 350 ppm CO2 in the air
  • ASHRAE recommend less than 1.000 ppm CO2 in the air
  • Human discomfort begins at levels above 800 - 1.000 ppm CO2 in the air
