In addition to regulations considered standard across international lines, it’s important to understand the local and regional ordinances which govern building construction.
There are a number of free resources available online for searching and finding building codes near you. If you are looking for ventilation building codes as designated by state, check out the buildingsguide.com State-By-State code archive. Through here, you can search each state’s official website for specific ventilation building code requirements.
Construct Connect’s website offers a slightly more in-depth database, which allows users to cross-reference building code data not only by state, but by the city as well.
Both databases provide homeowners and industry professionals with valuable resources for identifying what is needed to create a proper home ventilation system. Homeowners are also encouraged to ask their HVAC professionals for further details on how their specific company is accredited, and which practices they abide by, as inter-industry standards and best practices may be subject to variation depending on location.
