Ventilation Information Paper no39: “A review of performance-based approaches to residential smart ventilation” provides an overview of the regulations and standards proposing “performance-based approaches” in five countries to promote the use of smart ventilation strategies. It shows that a favorable context exists in many countries for the development of smart ventilation strategies.

In March 2017, AIVC identified smart ventilation for buildings as a new and important topic to be addressed.
Several actions were defined by AIVC Board about this topic in order to exchange and disseminate information on this topic. A working group of AIVC experts from several countries was created. One of its tasks was to agree on a definition of smart ventilation.
The purpose of this ventilation information paper is to present and illustrate this definition of "smart ventilation".

Exposures in homes constitute the major part of exposures to airborne pollutants experienced through the human lifetime. They can constitute from 60 to 95% of our total lifetime exposures, of which 30% occurs when we sleep.

Purpose of the work
Quantification and location of moisture penetration through leak-dependent creeping flows from the room into insulated, lightweight wall structures as a function of design, pressure differential, and leak position.
Method of approach
Pressure-dependent, high-precision through-flow measurement in a facade test stand and determination of the amount and distribution of condensate in a double climate chamber performed on lightweight wall sections with different cavity wall insulation and leak positioning.

Purpose of the work
All too often, we experts and measurement technicians are totally fixated on airtightness issues. Based on three practical cases, I would like to demonstrate that windproofness, minimal convection in the insulation layer, and the convective separation of different structural elements from one another should also be taken into account in order to prevent structural damage.
