A large-scale longitudinal indoor air quality study: is low-cost sensor deployment a viable approach?

To date, the vast majority of indoor air quality studies have relied on repeated visits to dwellings to obtain data derived from short-term monitoring exercises, a time-consuming process that places considerable constraints on personnel, equipment and costs. These studies have focussed on the use of research-grade instrumentation; however, recent developments in the field of consumer-grade indoor air quality sensor technology offers new opportunities.

AIVC 2019 workshop “Quality ventilation is the key to achieving low energy healthy buildings”

The presentations of the AIVC workshop "Quality ventilation is the key to achieving low energy healthy buildings" organized by the AIVC together with the SEAI and held on 27-28 March 2019 in Dublin, Ireland are now available for download.

This 2 day workshop provided a wealth of insights from experiences both nationally and internationally. It informed approach on ventilation as a key component of delivering both new buildings and deep retrofit low energy buildings.


Welcome on behalf of SEAI


Ireland joins the AIVC!

The AIVC is very pleased to welcome Ireland as new participating country! Ireland will be represented in the AIVC board by Simon Jones from Aereco ( The AIVC at present counts 17 countries composing the AIVC Board demonstrating the growing interest on air infiltration and ventilation issues in new and renovated buildings.
