The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the performance of 4 kinds of ventilation systems from the point of view of indoor air pollution and energy need during heating season under Japanese conditions by numerical simulation. TVOC was selected to characterize the indoor air quality impact to residents. The results show that in the case of mechanical exhaust ventilation system, TVOC level is the highest among all the systems. Mechanical central supply and exhaust ventilaton system shows its advantages for minimizing energy consumption and maintaining an acceptable indoor air quality.
