VIP 39: A review of performance-based approaches to residential smart ventilation

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.

VIP 38: What is smart ventilation?

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".

TN 68: Residential Ventilation and Health

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.

VIP 45.1: Trends in building and ductwork airtightness in Estonia

AIVC's Ventilation Information Paper #45.1 summarizes current knowledge on trends in building and ductwork airtightness in Estonia.

TN 69: 40 years to build tight and ventilate right: History of the AIVC

As the AIVC was created in 1979, the 40th anniversary of the AIVC was celebrated in October 2019 at the 40th AIVC conference in Ghent. In the context of this celebration, it was decided to publish 2 overview publications:

LL 36: Overview of Webinars in cooperation with TightVent Europe and venticool platforms

The AIVC (Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre), TightVent Europe (the building and ductwork airtightness platform) and venticool (the platform for resilient ventilative cooling have organised during the past 9 years 34 webinars around a wide range of topics. The main topics of the events held include:

VIP 44: Residential Cooker Hoods

AIVC's Ventilation Information Paper #44: Residential Cooker Hoods,  summarizes current knowledge on cooking contaminant emissions, its effects on IAQ, and identifies standards for assessing the efficacy of cooker hood (also known as a range hood) performance.

VIP 43: Residential ventilation and health

AIVC Technical Note 68 (TN 68) "Residential Ventilation and Health” is one of the outcomes of the work performed under the framework of AIVC’s project “Ventilation & Health” and benefited from contributions by several authors and many structured discussions held during specific sessions at AIVC events. TN 68 summarised studies that prioritise pollutants in the indoor environment and presented a

VIP 42: The Concept for Substituting Ventilation by Gas Phase Air Cleaning

Worldwide, there is an increasing number of publications related to air cleaning and sales of gas phase air cleaning products. This puts a demand for verifying the influence of using air cleaning on indoor air quality, comfort, well-being and health. It is thus important to learn whether air cleaning can supplement ventilation with respect to improving air quality i.e. whether it can partly substitute the ventilation rates required by standards.

LL 35: Building & Ductwork Airtightness (2020 Edition)

AIVC Literature List 35 is linked to the topics of “building & ductwork airtightness”. The document is split into 3 main chapters including:

  1. papers & slides presented at AIVC & TightVent Europe annual conferences and publications produced in collaboration with AIVC & TightVent Europe,
  2. slides presented at workshops organized with the collaboration of AIVC, TightVent Europe & the QUALICHeCK platform, and
  3. recordings from webinars organized with the collaboration AIVC, TightVent Europe & the QUALICHeCK platform.
