Energy conservation in dwellings has been realized mainly by tight windows and by improving heat insulation. Increasing damage to the building fabric by humidity and mould has been noticed. But there is no correlation between this damage and the improved insulation. Rather it is caused by too low ventilation rates. This paper deals with these problems in detail. Ventilation rates in the order of 0.5 to 0.8 per hour are assumed to be sufficient to avoid detrimental effects for the building and the inhabitants. An efficient measureto limit ventilation heat loss while ensuring adequate ventilation is the realization of controlled ventilation with heat recovery.
