The aim of this paper is to identify the weak points in nowadays ventilation installations in Belgium and to discuss energy performance approach of buildings as a way to solve many of the ventilation related problems. Therefore a number of experiences in the VLIET Office 2000 project and the SAVE Duct project are analysed: presence and type of ventilation installation encountered in the examined buildings, measured air flow rates compared to requirements, indoor air quality measurements based on CO2 detection, air tightness of ductworks, fan performances and maintenance and control of installations. This allows drawing conclusions on the performance of ventilation installations as encountred in these projects. As an answer to many of the detected problems, energy performance regulations are discussed after which general conclusions can be drawn.
