This paper examines three different ventilation strategies aimed at reducing the indoor concentration of traffic pollutants by ventilation control. In the strategies the air change rate is adjusted in response to (a) the outdoor concentration of the pollutant (single-sensor strategy), (b) the outdoor and indoor concentration (double-sensor strategy) and (c) the time of the day (peak-period strategy). A double sensor was found to be twice as effective as the single sensor, reducing the mean indoor concentration of carbon monoxide by 34% over a 48-hour period. Reducing the ventilation rate during peak traffic periods gave only small benefits.
