The aim of the study was to develop solutions to the problems and deficiencies encountered inventilation systems of day care centres, and which were manifested as poor IAQ or excessiveenergy consumption in the buildings at the maintenance stage of their ventilation systems.During the afternoon rest hour the IAQ was monitored and other measurements of ventilationcapacity were made. The directors and maintenance personnel of the day care centres wereinterviewed and a questionnaire was presented to the staff. Based on the results of the firststage of the research, even new systems did not work as intended because of inadequateplanning and construction of ventilation or inadequate use or maintenance of the ventilationsystems. Based on the results of the second stage of the research, both measured andexperienced IAQ is good when the clearly defined goals are verified by calculations andmeasurements during the process.
