Can cold storage areas conditioned below 32°F (0 °C) be excluded from the minimum ventilation requirements in the prerequisite Minimum Indoor Air Quality Performance? These spaces should be excluded for three reasons, 1. There are few contaminant sources in these spaces, 2. The introduction of outside air into these spaces is problematic, and 3. The storage areas are intended for storage of frozen goods and are uninhabitable environments, only occupied occasionally and for short periods of time, as dictated by OSHA requirements.
