This work is part of two French research projects “Durabilit'air1” (2016-2019) and “Durabilit'air2” (2021-2024), that aim at improving our knowledge on the variation of buildings envelope airtightness through onsite measurement and accelerated ageing in laboratory-controlled conditions.
The content presented in this paper is based on two publications in past AIVC conferences (Moujalled et al., 2019, 2018) and a research paper (Moujalled et al., 2021) about the mid-term and long-term changes in building airtightness through on-site measurements in low-energy houses.

Many studies reported that there were insufficient ventilation and excessive CO2 concentration in air-conditioned residential buildings, but few solutions were provided. This study first investigated the performance of three possible ventilation strategies of air-conditioned residential buildings, including overnight natural ventilation, short-term natural ventilation, and short-term mechanical ventilation.
