Ventilation requirements and demand controlled ventilation.

In order to avoid demage to the health of occupants, annoyance or reduction in amenity and demage to the building fabric the concentration of indoor air pollutants has to be held below pollutant specific levels. One appropriate measure for the control of concentration is ventilation. In several national and international activities in the past, among others in the IEA's Annex IX "Minimum Ventilation Rates" and standardization efforts in Germany and other countries, ventilation rates have been defined which should meet both indoor air quality (iaq) requirements and energy conservation.

Influence of night-time ventilation reduction on indoor air quality in Danish blocks of flats.

The paper describes the main results from a research project performed by "The Mobile Laboratory of Indoor Climate Measurements" one of the five mobile laboratories of the Institute. The aim of the project was to investigate if undesirable consequences occurred in the indoor climate when using an energy saving method consisting of reducing the mechanical exhaust from the "wet rooms" to app. 40 per cent of the normal performance during 12 hours of day and night.

Air exchange and ventilation efficiency. Luftutbytes- och Ventilationseffektivetet.

Several papers discussing ventilation efficiency, effective industrial ventilation, the positioning of ventilation inlets and outlets, displacement ventilation and other applications of the concept of ventilation efficiency.

The ventilation of dwellings. Structural basics. Wohnungsluftung. Bauphysikalische Grundlagen.

Due to the fact that loss of heat due to transmission is on the decrease, the loss of heat due to ventilation is becoming more important. Heat recovery units must be put into use to decrease the heat loss due to ventilation. If mechanical ventilation systems are used to create a minimum air change rate, air-tight windows are necessary - but if no ventilation grilles are used they are out of place.

The impact of the supply air window on indoor air. Laboratory tests. Tuloilmaikkunan vaikutus sisailmastoon. Laboratoriokokeet.

Describes laboratory tests to find correct operative conditions for a controlled outside air intake through the air space in the window to provide efficient ventilation without creating draughts.
