The working group WG4 of ISO TC 205 aims to define Indoor Air Quality criteria.
Tissot A., Bernard A.M.
A simplified tool, called ConsoClim, has been developed for estimating energy consumption of air conditioned buildings and for comparing HVAC and building solutions. Its main aim is to be used at the early stage of the design process.
