What does ASHRAE stand for?

American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

What are ASHRAE Standards?

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has 87 active standards and guiding project committees addressing areas such as indoor air quality, thermal comfort, energy conservation in buildings, refrigerant emissions reduction and safety classification.

ASHRAE writes standards and guidelines in its areas of expertise to guide industry in the delivery of relevant goods and services to the public. ASHRAE standards and guidelines include uniform test methods for rating purposes, describe recommended practices in designing and installing equipment, and provide reference information to guide industry.

How to Use ASHRAE Standards?

How ASHRAE standards can help you:

  • Include efficient products
  • Maximize market potential
  • Conduct consistent tests

Keep in Mind!

Follow accepted heating and cooling guidelines and processes

What is the Purpose of ASHRAE?

The American Society of Heating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHAE), founded in 1894, and the American Society of Refrigerating Engineers (ASRE), founded in 1904, merged into the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHREA) in 1959.

With more than 50,000 members from 132 countries, ASHRAE works to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world for heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration.

ASHRAE Publications

  • Measurement or Test Method
  • Standard Design
  • Standard Application

Consensus standards are developed and published to define minimum values and acceptable performance, whereas other documents, such as design guidelines, can be developed and published to encourage increased performance.

ASHRAE standards are used by designers, manufacturers and installers of heating, air conditioning and refrigeration equipment. These standards are also used by architects and mechanical engineers to clearly specify equipment.
