Additional Information

Welcome to the homepage of the ASHRAE Technical Committee 1.6. This technical committee is concerned with HVAC terminology as used in society publications, standards, and computer assisted design tools. We are responsible for the Abbreviations and Symbols chapter and the Units and Conversions chapter in the Fundamentals Handbook.

The ASHRAE Wiki is now live ( http://wiki.ashrae.org ). The Wiki was created to encourage the use of a consistent and precise vocabulary by Society, the HVAC&R industry and those in related fields who need to refer to an authoritative source of HVAC&R technical terminology.

ASHRAEwiki contains terminology related to buildings, with a particular focus on mechanical, envelope, electrical, lighting, load calculations, design, water design/conservation, and energy use and measurement metrics. Each term has one or more primary definition(s) and an indication denoting in which standard(s) the term is used. Some definitions have been reviewed by ASHRAE Technical Committee (TC) 1.6, Terminology, and these terms indicate TC 1.6 as their source. It is recommended that all new publications use the primary definitions of terminology found on this site.

Term harmonization is one goal of this effort. Standards developers can request a full extraction of the AccessWiki that contains additional definitions that may be specific to an individual standard.

 SPC 164 HVAC Graphic symbols was reaffirmed in 2014. Please join us for an future update of the standard to include piping colors.

Please come and get involved. We meet on Monday afternoon at 4:15pm to 6pm at both the annual and winter meetings.
