This project is in California, and ventilation rates comply with Title 24. We have an unoccupied electrical room that is served by a fan coil system which recirculates air at 650 cfms/sf, however there is no outside air as it is unoccupied. We noticed ASHRAE has a minimum cfm requirements for electrical equipment rooms (0.06 cfms/sf), however it was our understanding these rooms are exempt from calculations as this credit establishes minimum performance for occupant comfort and wellbeing.

Can you confirm?
