There has been a fair amount of effort in various quarters aimed at increasing the usability of the IAQP.
The standard allows designers to apply the IAQP in some zones within a system, and the VRP in other zones, and it requires designers to document design assumptions and calculations, but here we focus on the nine steps listed.
Designers must also consider mixtures-of-concern to comply with the IAQP.
Most designers using the IAQP don't identify impact mixtures--they simply focus on the concentration limits for specific contaminants, and assume they need only introduce the OA needed for the "worst-case" contaminant.
After completion of design, construction and installation, but prior to full operational occupancy, a subjective evaluation must be conducted in each IAQP zone.
The higher of these two values establishes the minimum breathing zone OA rate for each IAQP zone.
The IAQP is a valid procedure that has apparently been successfully applied to design ventilation systems in some buildings, especially where the same building design with substantially similar zones is repeated in multiple locations.
Air purification can be used under the IAQP to reduce design ventilation requirements by removing gas and particle contaminants from indoor air.
