Observation: Cooling of rooms is inadequate.

Performance Standard: If air-conditioning is installed by the remodeler, the cooling system shall be capable of maintaining a temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit, as measured in the center of each room at a height of 5 feet above the floor under local outdoor summer design conditions as specified in the ASHRAE Handbook: Fundamentals. In the case of outside temperatures exceeding 95 degrees Fahrenheit, the system shall keep the inside temperature 15 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than the outside temperature. National, state, or local codes shall supersede this standard where such codes have been locally adopted.

Corrective Measure: The remodeler will correct the cooling system to provide the required temperature in accordance with the performance standard or applicable code specifications.
