Energy Savings Plus Health | INDOOR AIR QUALITY GUIDELINES FOR MULTIFAMILY BUILDING UPGRADES 43 PRIORITY ISSUE 14.0 ENVIRONMENTAL TOBACCO SMOKE (ETS) (continued) ASSESSMENT PROTOCOLS (AP) MINIMUM ACTIONS (MA) EXPANDED ACTIONS (EA) Notes: (1) The activities above are intended to reduce ETS migration but will not eliminate it. (2) The above air sealing strategies are intended to help reduce the exposure of occupants in non-smoking units adjacent to smokers' units. These actions are unlikely to reduce the risks of ETS to occupants living in the smokers' units. (3) When air sealing, the air barrier assembly must have been evaluated by the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) and installed according to manufacturer specifications. Fire-rated assemblies must be sealed using approved fire- rated materials. The fire rating requirements supersede the ABAA evaluation requirements. (4) Also refer to Priority Issue 16.0 Compartmentalization to Prevent Odor or Unwanted Air Transfer.
