The society funds research projects, offers continuing education programs, and develops and publishes technical standards to improve building services engineering , energy efficiency , indoor air quality , and sustainable development. One of the four volumes is updated each year. ASHRAE also publishes a set of standards and guidelines relating to HVAC systems and issues, that are often referenced in building codes and used by consulting engineers, mechanical contractors, architects, and government agencies. They contain articles on related technology, information on upcoming meetings, editorials, and case studies of various well-performing buildings.
