This study is an analysis of the advantages of two ventilation systems (exhaust mechanical ventilation, balanced mechanical ventilation with heat recovery) using the Negative Index approach, which is affected by life cycle cost and environmental impact. The balanced system appears to be a better choice (less environmental impact, better indoor air quality) even if its life cycle cost is higher.
