Major revisions for design and measurement of comfortable spaces are included in a newly published ASHRAE 2013 thermal comfort standard. ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55-2013, Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy, combines the 2010 standard and 18 published addenda into a consolidated standard. 

The core of the standard in Sections 4 and 5 specifies methods to determine thermal environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, air speed and radiant effects) in buildings and other spaces that a significant proportion of the occupants will find acceptable at a certain metabolic rate and clothing level. Section 7 includes new requirements for measurement and evaluation, and is also applicable to commissioning.
